MPNS COST Action 529
Efficient Lighting for the 21st Century
Descriptions are provided by the Actions directly via e-COST.
The main objective of the Action, at both the basic breakthrough and the pre-competitive research levels, was to seek for new concepts and materials for the lighting industry through the study of the feasibility of high efficacy, novel, light source technologies.
COST 529 brought together scientists from academia and from the three major European companies in lighting. One of the most significant outcomes was the “COST Reference Lamp”.More than 100 specimens of this Metal Halide Lamp (with different metal halide contents) have been produced by Philips, and they were distributed to various labs for testing and metrological purposes. Another highlight was the design of a new urban lighting scheme in the French city of Albi, well publicized in various news media.
