LIA Developing the Lighting Community for a Bright and Exciting Future
- Published: Friday, 16 September 2016 11:01
Only six months after the LIA opened its 12,500 sq ft purpose built Laboratories facility we will officially launch the Lighting Industry Academy on September 28, this is part of the LIA’s continued investment in its Membership and the UK lighting community as a whole.
The Lighting Industry Academy, funded in part by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund was developed in response to the real and pressing need within the industry to provide a central, coherent training and career path for lighting industry professionals and trades people.
The Academy, brings together providers, manufactures, academic institutions and other leading organisations. Through this collaborative model, the Academy can bring skills and learning to the whole lighting community and create the opportunity to work together towards a bright and exciting future.
September 28th will be the first chance to explore and experience the new Academy home and to join us for a seminar event being held on the subjective topic of ‘Brexit and its impact on the UK lighting industry’, presented by key players from industry and academia.
