The CSP (Continuing Study Program) in Smart Lighting provides a comprehensive view of the latest innovations in lighting and smart and digital lighting systems.

The illumination sector has evolved relentlessly over the past few years owing to research and new technology. The new concept of smart lighting is linked closely to control technology and energy efficiency. 

The CSP focusses on this specific area in the broadest sense: making conscious use of technology so as to promote comfort, convenience and easy use, as well as fostering environmental awareness and emphasising people’s needs to inspire creative and well‑informed solutions.
