IES January Luncheon Topic: Lighting Education Toward's 2020
With the latest in technological advancements and physiological research in the lighting field, the need for unbiased lighting education has never been more acute.

With LED technologies and the questions of life, lumen depreciation, colour and even the effects on health, there has never been a time when the necessity for succinct lighting education has been more vital.
