Summer schools

The Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership L4H project was officially launched on 4 October 2018. Over three years, the Consortium will participate in Summer schools, workshops and meetings to create a trans-disciplinary teaching course on the topic of “Health Research for Lighting Design”. The course will consist of three educational modules: “Interior Lighting for Domestic Spaces”, “Lighting for Working / Educational Environments”, and “Lighting for Healthcare Environments”.

As a result of the L4H project, educational materials, video lectures of three summer schools, documents and interactive exercises will be placed on a Virtual Platform created through the project. Access to the platform will be open to anyone interested in the L4H project. The idea of this Virtual Platform is to unite the best educational resources, materials, methods and tools to research the influence of light on human health in lighting design, and to develop the quality of light and lighting environment. Among the research interests considered in the project are neurology, photobiology, neuroendocrinology, psychophysiology and psychology.

The partners involved in L4H project are:

  • University of Wolverhampton, United Kingdom — Faculty of Arts; Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • Aalborg University, Denmark — Lighting Design Research Group of the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology
  • Hochschule Wismar, Germany — Faculty of Architecture and Design
  • KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden — Department of Lighting Design at KTH School of Architecture and the Built Environment; Department of Media Technology and Interaction Design, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
