5 New Lighting Innovation Triggers
A “Design meets Technology Forum” is planned where the needs and requirements of lighting designers will be discussed and interaction with lighting engineers and system designers will be sought. The creative lighting community will also be given the chance to present their solutions from the component up to the lighting systems in the new “Start-Up Innovators” area. Besides the technical innovations, a Light-Art Design area opens the door to lighting designers and lighting artists, presenting their objects in the foyer of the opera house. In addition, intelligent light engines will be presented in a workshop covering spectrally and tunable LED and OLED lighting. The European project HI-LED will be covering “Intelligent Solutions” for museum, horticulture and street lighting. Finally, on day 3, EPIC, the European Photonics Industry Consortia, will offer a workshop on Horticulture Lighting and present their latest findings in plant growth system lights.
