Unlike conventional light source, SSL technologies and applications require a thorough collaboration across many subjects such as physics, material, semiconductor, mechanical engineering, optical engineering, packaging, power electronics, computer engineering, communication etc. To ensure a fast and sustainable development of SSL, a symphony is necessary among the many subjects, since a breakthrough probably needs synchronized progress in several domains. ISA deviseds the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) by a concerted action of experts from academia, industry and public authorities across the world. It requires an understanding of global value chain and a forward-looking of technical goals and market. The SRA guides global SSL technology and application developments and provide a 2020 vision to academia, industry and policy makers.

The Global SSL Outlook 1 published by ISA is the first comprehensive outlook on global SSL industry. ISA will continue gathering the latest information and most insight analysis on all the issues of SSL, and publish GSO2, GSO3 etc. to summarize and update the achievements made and explore the sustainable way forward.
