This week’s DVNewsletter is a biggie! Today we release our latest DVN Report, Universities and Lighting. Institutes of higher learning represent an essential talent pool for the automotive sector entire, and naturally for the lighting industry. Close collaboration is essential so universities can tailor their programs to industry needs, particularly now these needs are changing and growing faster than ever.
Another kind of collaboration is also crucial: universities are uniquely positioned and resourced to do the research which propels every aspect of vehicle lighting forward—including basic and advanced research to unleash breakthroughs, and to quantify, from a neutral and disinterested perspective, the safety performance potential of innovations requiring regulatory adaptations.
The report we release today brings you detailed information; facts and figures; achievements and interviews, about universities around the world supporting and participating in the vehicle lighting and driver vision ecosystem. Download your copy today.

March is international Women’s History Month, a recognition important in male-dominated fields like engineering. Women have been actively innovating in vehicle lighting and signalling ever since it was a brand-new thing, as you’ll see in this week’s news. There are skilled; talented, hard-working women throughout the vehicle lighting world—they’re on standards boards like the SAE Lighting Systems Group and GRE. They’ve started successful driver-vision companies like IRYStec, whose founder Dr. Tara Akhavan is the subject of this week’s in-depth DVN Interview. And they’re renowned researchers at prestigious universities, like Fudan University’s Dr. Yandan Lin, profiled and interviewed at length in the Universities and Lighting report.
