Meeting for Educators and Researchers 2018

Pre-convention meeting for Educators and Researchers

For the meeting in Singapore we intend to reach out to all in advance with some key questions on the current status quo of the lighting education and research landscape, the answers to which will serve as a basis for discussion. The meeting will also include a guest speaker on an education-related topic. At PLDC in Paris, renewed interest was shown in enabling closer contact and exchange between educational and research institutions around the world on a regular basis and in a coordinated manner. Further steps will be discussed in Singapore.

The agenda for the meeting is as follows:
