About us

Mission/Objectives: 

ELCA is a non-profit association whose main objectives are to strengthen the competitiveness of the European lighting sector in smart and connected lighting (S&CL), to accelerate growth within the sector, deployment of energy-efficient lighting solutions and to contribute to societal benefits associated with lighting.

We work for innovation, driven by research, industry, public authorities and citizens by taking initiatives on the European level, demonstrating, experimenting, sharing knowledge and communicating. Our mission is to strengthen the role of the lighting and smart building clusters in Europe and to raise the voice of their member companies, mainly SMEs to muster the most effective answer to the challenges that the European industry needs to tackle.

In particular, ELCA promotes international actions to strengthen cluster management excellence and facilitate exchanges and strategic partnering between clusters and specialised eco-systems across Europe. ELCA fosters the collaboration, networking and learning of cluster organisations and their members towards the professionalization of specialised and customised business support services provided and channelled to SMEs.

ELCA supports its members’ local, regional and national position by adding European perspectives and putting its authority as a pan-European organization.
