LIGHTCAP: Light, Cognition, Attention, Perception

Project description

Training experts on truly intelligent, human-centric lighting

Cognition, attention and perception (CAP) are crucial for the productive, safe and healthy functioning of people. Based on recent studies, light aids CAP, both directly and indirectly. However, large-scale migration to cities, more time spent indoors and our 24-hour economy have affected people’s light exposure, with adverse effects on their health, social and cognitive functioning. Truly human-centred lighting is therefore becoming crucial. The EU-funded LIGHTCAP project intends to contribute to the body of scientific knowledge on the relationship between light and CAP, by preparing the next generation of experts studying truly intelligent, human-centric lighting. This work will result in a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers able to grasp the implications of their findings for other fields.
