Following a request for cooperation in the field of non-visual effects of light among the PEROSH institutes in January 2018 by the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA), scientists of PEROSH institutes from Denmark (National Research Center for Work Environment – NFA), the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), the Polish Central Institute for Occupational Safety and Health – National Research Center (CIOP-PIB) and the BAuA joined a European workshop on “Light and Health at Work” on 23 and 24 May 2018 in Dortmund, Germany. In addition, the Public Health England (PHE) and the Institute for Occupational Health and Safety of the German Social Accident Insurance (IFA) participated. Activities in fields of non-visual effects of light and circadian research were presented and ways towards closer cooperation and joint research activities have been discussed.

Following the workshop, the European scientific network Non-Visual Effects of Light (NoVEL) was founded. The aim of the network is to share information on research activities of the network’s institutions and to carry out larger joint research projects. The new network is coordinated by the BAuA.
