On 1 September 2015 we will be hosting our 3rd VELUX Daylight Academic Forum at London Metropolitan University in London, and we invite all PhD students working with daylight research to join us!

The forum is a one day event held together with an invited panel of leading scientific experts and PhD students working with daylight in their research. It is an excellent opportunity to establish and strengthen your network among other fellow PhD students working with daylight, and to get further insights into your research topic and methodology.

In line with previous events, the programme will focus on a mix of individual presentations of each research projects in smaller groups, as well as constructive discussions with scientific experts providing valuable feedback and guidance.

Our confirmed panel of scientific experts this year will include Professor Steve Fotios from University of Sheffield (UK), Professor John Mardaljevic from Loughborough University (UK) and Senior Researcher Jens Christoffersen from the VELUX Group (DK).

“I was impressed by the creative ideas presented as well as by the number and diversity of students. This adds to the ample reasons for optimism about lighting’s bright future in our buildings and communities, as an industry and as part of the fabric of society.”

Jennifer Veitch, Supervisor

“…it has been the most formative and funny experience ever! I think that the opportunity to discuss our PhD research project with such leading experts is really uncommon and a PhD student can’t miss it! Moreover sharing experience and knowledge with other PhD students from other countries has been an exceptional chance, I had a lot of good suggestions and advice.”

Silvia Cammarano, PhD student
