Research Workshops

Exploratory Workshop

Lighting Enabled Systems & ApplicationsThis Transforming Healthcare and Wellbeing through Lighting Workshop was co‐sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF)‐funded Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) Center for Lighting Enabled Systems and Applications (LESA) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) to address the research, design, specification, and adoption challenges of new lighting applications for maximizing healthcare benefits and improving healthcare operations. The IES and RPI LESA Co‐Chairs brought together leading researchers, selected lighting company representatives, lighting designers, healthcare standards organizations’ representatives, and hospital facility directors to discuss the status, barriers, opportunities and market needs/value propositions for developing lighting standards and specifying/installing lighting systems that can benefit both patients and healthcare providers in healthcare facilities.
