Research Project NOBEL

Welcome to the research project NOBEL

The NOBEL research project is a groundbreaking initiative carried out on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK). Our goal is to increase energy efficiency, conserve resources and sustainably improve the quality of life in urban areas. The focus of our efforts is the optimization of outdoor lighting, a crucial factor for sustainability and quality of life in cities.

Our Survey: Your opinion matters
In order to fully capture the potential in outdoor lighting, we are conducting an extensive survey that is divided into three specific questionnaires. These surveys are open until June 1st and aim to gather a wide range of perspectives and experiences:

End user: Your use of urban spaces and your assessment of lighting quality as well as the importance of sustainability are important to us. Let us know what you think and with a bit of luck you could win one of 10 Amazon vouchers worth €100 each. (Duration: approx. 15-20 minutes)

Science and research: We invite scientists to discuss the transfer content of their research into lighting applications. Their expertise is crucial to progress in this area. (Duration: approx. 10 minutes)

Interest groups: Municipalities, planners, manufacturers, network operators, committees and experts are called upon to share their knowledge and insights on technological potential and challenges. (Duration: approx. 20 minutes)

Participate and create
Every contribution counts to make our cities more sustainable and worth living in. Visit our survey hub, select the group relevant to you and let's redefine the future of urban lighting together.
