Lighting for everyone - Austrian project awarded at the Creative Business Cup in Copenhagen

12. December 2013

The Austrian non-profit company Kairos entered the international Creative Business Cup for the first time and was awarded the special price of the jury for its innovative project SunLight - solar lighting systems for low-income regions.

SunLight is a LED assembly kit for lighting and an economic alternative to kerosene lamps – the most common kind of lighting source in less privileged areas. Thanks to SunLight a larger number of people will now have access to cheaper lighting. “This is a project that can really change the world” the jury said.
