China Solid State Lighting Alliance (CSA)

China Solid State Lighting Alliance(CSA)was founded in October 2004 in principle of voluntary, equality and collaboration. CSA was originally advocated by 43 major Chinese SSL enterprises and research institutions. With the enhancement of its cohesiveness and influence in the industry, CSA grows rapidly and currently has 117 members from across Hong Kong and Main-land China.

The mission of CSA is developing technology and industrialization of China SSL through ollaboration, win-win, innovation and development. Utilizing existing resources, CSA establishes a mechanism for sharing information of upper- and lower-streams of SSL industry, research and development, as well as intellectual properties. CSA, on the other hand, plays a leading role of building up a channel between government departments and the industry, and a platform for intelligent cultivation and international cooperation. CSA also provides assistances for foundation of standards, assessments and quality testing systems, helping its members in self-value realization therefore upgrading the competitiveness of the whole Chinese SSL industry.

The organizational structure of CSA includes the Alliance Congress, Board of Governors, General Council with three permanent working groups including Standardization, IP Pools and Cross-Strait. CSA runs under the leadership of General Council, governed by the executive president. The General Council consists of up to eleven entities including three research institutions, three epitaxy/chip manufactures and five packaging and application companies; the General Council has one research and development president, one industry executive president and one secretary. The Secretariat portal is Beijing Advanced Materials S&T Promotion Center.

Korea Association for Photonics Industry Development (KAPID)

KAPID is an industrial association of photonics in Korea. The aims of KAPID are to build strengthen ties within the industry and to make mutual benefits from public and private sectors.

The major activities of KAPID are to support R&D of photonics technology, to distribute of its results, to build up international cooperative projects & programs, and to foster overall developments of photonics industry in Korea.

Furthermore, KAPID provides data and informational materials of R&D, technology, technology transfer and photonics market research for the members.

On behalf of the members, KAPID also collect opinions from the industry to make proposals to the government which the activities are to protect and support the rights and interests of the member companies.

Eventually, KAPID is to devote itself to develop the Korean economy and improve the national wealth.

Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA)

The Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA) is a Washington DC-based, not-for-profit association that serves as the nexus for vision, transformation, and growth of the optoelectronics industry. OIDA advances the competitiveness of its members by focusing on the business of technology, not just technology itself.

OIDA members include the leading providers of optoelectronic components and systems enabled by optoelectronics, as well as universities and research institutions. OIDA provides roadmaps, reports, and market data for the optoelectronics industry, serves as the voice of industry to government and academia, acts as liaison with other optoelectronic industry associations worldwide, and provides a network for the exchange of ideas and information within the optoelectronics community.

Taiwan Optoelectronic Semiconductor Industry Association (TOSIA)

Taiwan Optoelectronic Semiconductor Industry Association (TOSIA) was established since March 23, 2007.

TOSIA is a legal entity with the Government authority, its mission is to establish the platform to foster the cooperation among the optoelectronic semiconductor industry of Taiwan, to further industry's technological development, establish industrial LED standards, promoting international exchange activity, help government to specify relevant policy, and to organize seminars and conferences to share developments in the industry and technical field, etc.

TOSIA also strives to combine the R&D talents and resources of domestic optoelectronic semiconductor manufacturers and Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) to provide effective technical and specialized services, to upgrade the technology of Taiwan LED industry.

Indian Society of Lighting Engineers (ISLE) Indian Society of Lighting Engineers (ISLE) is a professional body in the field of illuminating engineering with a broad based membership of scientists, engineers, architects, academicians, researchers, designers and others interested in lighting issues.
