This document reports a summation of the project “OLED Academy ‐ prospects for energy saving and design” conducted by the department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Fotonik) in collaboration with the lighting association Danish Lighting Center (DCL) and a number of Danish lighting designers, during 2017 and 2018. The objective was to raise the level of knowledge in the lighting industry of OLED technology, and catalyze the realization of new products based on OLED technology. The designers in the lighting industry is one of the vital links in the value chain for the realization of lighting solutions and new lighting products. The OLED Academy project arranged during the last half of 2018 a course for 20 designers, who got to learn from experts from DTU Fotonik and DCL about OLED technology and lighting design, respectively. The subsequent task for each participant was to design a product based on OLED technology. Five winning contributions were selected and realized as final models. The five models where exhibited during a final exhibition in Copenhagen at Design Werck, a meeting point and showroom for selected contemporary Danish and Scandinavian design, on December 11, 2018. The project and its results were noticed in several articles in lighting magazines in both Denmark and Sweden. All participating designers have all rights to the designs and models that they have developed in the
OLED Academy project. It is hoped that the project will encourage lighting designers to use the knowledge about OLED technology in further work, which will lead to more OLED‐based applications and products. Furthermore, within the project, there was a report conducted, which concluded the state of the art regarding OLED technology, and also presented a photometric characterization study of a number of purchased OLED panels.
