GLOW Academy

This week, the first GLOW Academy of 2021 took place in collaboration with TU/e Innovation Space. GLOW Academy is a event where professionals and students meet and collaborate with the aim of bringing together light knowledge.

Many student teams work in the form of GLOWlabs on projects for GLOW 2021. GLOWlabs are sessions in which Eindhoven companies, artists, technicians, designers, institutions, residents and often students from a specific theme work together on innovative light artworks for GLOW or conduct research in the field of light. The GLOW Academy is therefore the GLOWlab connector; where innovation, knowledge and creativity meet.

During the first Academy, the student teams were given the opportunity to submit their ideas, progress and any questions to a team of experts.
