Organisation

The Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI) has been founded on April 8, 2010 after a successful collaboration within the ILIA consortium. ILI is part of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). With ILI we aim at the creation of a scientific community of practice dedicated to intelligent lighting solutions with a scientific and application-based approach towards all aspects of light. Key is the establishment of partnerships with stakeholders in the public-private field: companies, knowledge institutes, and government bodies. A multidisciplinary and multifunctional approach is the only way to reach breakthrough in this field, in addition the work will be concept driven and evidence based. Human centric real-life test beds will be realized at the TU/e campus and at public spaces like the city of Eindhoven.
Participating TU/e departments are Applied Physics, Built Environment, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Design, Industrial Engineering & Innovation Science, Mathematics & Computer Science.
