This summer, the European Forum Alpbach is dedicated to the issue of InEquality. As part of the Alpbach Technology Forum, Stefan Tasch, CEO LUMITECH, will hold a lecture on 28 August 2015 within the working group 12, "Vibrant Future? Challenges and opportunities of LED lighting".
Awareness of the toxic components of fluorescent lamps and the EU ban on incandescent lighting has brought the issue into the public consciousness. Rapid advances in the field of LED lighting revolutionize modern lighting systems and open up new market opportunities. Further studies on the effects of lighting on people, the modern architecture, but also on the undesirable effects such as light pollution are needed. Awarding the Nobel Prize in physics for the invention of the blue light-emitting diode in 2014 confirms the great influence that this kind of lighting has nowadays.
