The ten partners of SSL4EU are from seven different member states and include large industrial companies, two SMEs and two universities. To achieve the objectives of the project, the collective partnership of the consortium requires world-class experience in optoelectronics, electronics, thermal management, optics engineering as well as acceptance studies.
For the highly interdisciplinary tasks in SSL4EU outstanding experts in their field have been assembled. A key success factor for this integrated project is to cover the complete value chain to be able to come up with a new generation of LED light engines and luminaires. This new generation of light engines and luminaires will contain all components of the system – not just a single one. The project is set-up in a way that all participants are closely linked to each other but carry out complementary tasks (figure below).
