Siegfried Luger publisher of LED professional and director of the LED professional Symposium + Expo commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity to work with ISA and their members to assist the development of LED technologies, influence growth in the Solid State Lighting industry (SSL) and take part in shaping a sustainable society. We already work with many of the ISA members through our publications and the LED Symposium and Exhibition and we look forward to forming even closer relationships with them. We see our main role in bringing together all technological aspects of LED and OLED including legislation, standardization, research & development, manufacturing and supply & distribution”.
Lighting is the essential pre-condition for the existence of nearly all living beings on earth. SSL has unlimited innovation potentials to enhance people’s lives and to create a green & sustainable society. It is becoming a strategic industry and the technology of choice for both conventional and emerging lighting applications, with huge industrial, economic, scientific and social impact.
Both ISA and LED professional are already part of international co-operations and are looking to extend global initiatives to accelerate and foster the development of the international SSL industry and applications.
ISA's scope covers the complete spectrum of SSL technologies and applications. Technologies include materials and equipment, LED-based light sources, modules, lamps, luminaires, electronics for lighting, systems, lighting design and architecture, testing and qualification, recycling, SSL related regulations, etc. Applications include all segments of general lighting, backlighting, transport and mobility, horticulture, healthcare, safety, communications, and other societal needs.
LED professional has been working in this field for more than 10 years, establishing itself as a major voice with regard to LED and OLED related issues. The LED professional publications and especially the LED professional Symposium and Expo bring together industry, academia and organizations in the area of LED and OLED adding specialist knowledge and networks to ISA and its members. The LED professional Symposium and Expo is regarded as Europe’s foremost LED lighting event, a platform to interact, exchange and foster new relationships.
The general opinion in the industry is that SSL related challenges can be solved when all the participants work together and form a strong partnership.
