Who are we?

The founders behind VERAMlight consist of the researchers that developed the method as a research project. VERAMlight is a method to be used when assessing the visual environment, such as lighting, daylight, work posture, work task etc. It is a tool that can be used when discussing visual problems at a workplace with the management or an employee, and to give recommendations on how to improve the situation.
