Please join us for this exciting program, and opportunity to interact with industrial and academic thought leaders, as well as with the next generation of leaders, our highly trained students.

Target audience includes Chief Technology Officers, senior management in technology strategy and business development, and lead research scientists.

This conference is hosted by the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center (ERC), funded by National Science Foundation at a level of $4M/yr. The ERC is an interdisciplinary, multi-institution organization with the vision to transform the way society uses light by improving the energy-efficiency, productivity and health of society. The mission of the ERC is three- fold:

  • To engage in research leading to controllable solid-state light systems that can adapt to specific requirements, environments, and condition
  • To develop a culture of innovation and engage industry to commercialize the ERC’s research results
  • To work with educators to develop the diverse world-class workforce that will be needed to grow the business of Smart Lighting.

The center is led by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, with Boston University and The University of New Mexico as core partners. Howard University, Morgan State University, and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology are outreach and education partners.
