Light exposure has a fundamental and exquisite impact on human health functioning. Examples include the synchronisation of endogenous circadian rhythms to the light-dark cycle and the short-term effects of light exposure on melatonin production. In this talk, we will discuss current research projects as well as joint activities as part of our Network of European Institutes for Advanced Study Constructive Advanced Thinking group “Light and Human Health”, including our ongoing Delphi study to develop standard guidelines on documenting and reporting light interventions.
