Our vision

To catalyse any means necessary for the use of (day-)light to improve general health, quality of life and living conditions across the life span, based on biological, psychological and societal needs. For this purpose, the impact of daylight will be systematically assessed, and new tools, applications will be validated and implemented in the fields of vision science and ophthalmology, healthy ageing and clinical practice.
