The Light Collaboration Network invites you to attend a series of research and networking sessions spread over two days in April. Free to attend, the event is designed for professionals from across the disciplines to encourage collaboration and knowledge transfer.

Monday 17 April

Monday will be packed with presentations, discussions and networking opportunities for anyone involved in applying light research in education, design or industry.

There will be a networking dinner, from 18:30, to be held on-site at the Bryggan restaurant at IKDC (Ingvar Kamprad Designcentrum). We hope that you will take the chance to meet and mingle with each other in a relaxed setting. This is the only part of the conference which we ask you to pay for (SEK 395, to be paid at the restaurant).
