Project Details


L4H’s Consortium is developing a novel educational course to teach health research methods and findings to lighting designers at graduate level. The course is based on the Health Research-Based Innovative Open Educational Resources and Tools for Lighting Design Students and Professionals designed by Consortium and Associated partners. Project partners benefit from Erasmus+ funding to develop together a cross-disciplinary course on the intersection of lighting design and health research by selecting the most relevant health research methods, tools, and findings in Neurology, Photobiology, Neuroendocrinology, Neurobehavioral Studies, Psychophysiology of Perception, as well as Behavioural, Cognitive and Environmental Psychology, and introducing them into lighting design curricula. The course is extended with rich and professionally produced open educational materials, and an online Virtual Lab platform aimed at accessibility and fostering implementation across Europe. In addition, the project will facilitate the learning mobility opportunities for both students and staff of participating universities through a series of summer schools.
