European Lighting Cluster Alliance selects Niels Carsten Bluhme as president
At an extraordinary general meeting of the ELCA, which was held at Aalborg University Copenhagen, Director of City, Culture, Environment and Employment in Albertslund Municipality, Niels Carsten Bluhme, was chosen as the organization's new president.
He was picked as a representative of Dansk Lys (Danish Light), where he replaces Flemming Madsen. At the same time Mark Fontoynont was elected vice president of the ELCA on behalf of Cluster Lumiere.
"I see the appointment as another sign, that Danish companies and research institutions in photonics, lighting and digitization are doing extremely well on the global stage. With the launch of the testing laboratory DOLL Living Lab and the conference ’City Under Microscope’ where more than 100 participants from cities around the world came to Albertslund to hear about our approach to lighting, we have created a solid platform for attracting knowledge intensive businesses and create new jobs in Denmark, " says Niels Carsten Bluhme.
ELCA is a European umbrella organisation for lighting clustres in 10 European countries. The organization's primary purpose is to support the European lighting clustres in creating jobs and improving quality of life, through matchmaking across clusters and by honing their skills.
