LIGHTCAP - New institutional project for LIPID
Within the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN) from the European funding program Horizon 2020, the Laboratory of Integrated Performance in Design (LIPID) receives new funding.
The project – coordinated by the Technical University of Eindhoven under the acronym LIGHTCAP (which stands for Light, Cognition, Attention, Perception) – brings together seven academic institutions and fourteen industry partners in Europe around the theme of human-centric lighting. Within the broader objectives of the LIGHTCAP project, research conducted at LIPID will aim to determine how lighting conditions found in the built environment, and in offices and residences in particular, influence the neurophysiological behavior of its occupants, with a dedicated focus on daylighting aspects. We will put a special emphasis on alertness and circadian phase synchronization, and will explore how these non-visual responses to light complement visual comfort requirements.
This project will offer unique opportunities for the 15 PhD students involved in this consortium to be integrated into an international training program. Two PhD positions are currently open at LIPID: Linked in.
