Lighting technology, from components and solid-state lighting systems, to human-centred, energy-efficient and intelligent lighting solutions. Lighting design combined with an optimal lighting experience.
Value for the Dutch high tech industry
Solid-state lighting is a type of lighting that uses LEDs and OLEDs as the source of illumination, rather than incandescent filaments or gas discharges. Solid-state lighting is very energy-efficient; twenty times more efficient than incandescent lighting in fact.
Solid-state lighting systems are more resistant to shock, vibration and wear than ‘traditional’ lighting solutions, which results in a longer service life. In addition, this lighting technology is digital; it is easy to dim and can be easily integrated into intelligent (building) systems. Finally, the possibilities for creating engineered lighting for special applications are almost endless: lighting for greenhouses that make plants grow better, lighting that influences sleep rhythms, lighting to create a certain atmosphere and, for example, light as a data communication technology.
What we do as Holland High Tech
Holland High Tech supports the sector by funding research and innovation and by finding the right partners in the business community, and within government and education. We contribute to the international perspective.
Lighting Road Map
In Holland High Tech’s 2020-2030 Road Map you can read how the sector will develop in the next ten years. This road map is a stakeholder vision of the R&D needs of the Dutch sector associated with this technology in the period up to 2030. This road map is intended as a guideline that sets out a further development path for the industry and its stakeholders, and defines a supportive strategy for government, to ensure optimal continued development in partnership with education and to contribute to solutions in this decade.
