The proceedings collect contributions presented during the international conference “Shaping light for health and wellbeing in cities”, organised in the framework of the Horizon2020 ENLIGHTENme project. The conference has investigated the multifaceted consequences light has on life in cities by adopting a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to explore the complexity of challenges urban lighting poses on health and wellbeing, urban realm and social life. The papers cover several disciplines such as clinical and biomedical sciences, ethics and Responsible Research & Innovation, urban planning and architecture, data accessibility and interoperability, as well as social sciences and economics, and provide multifaceted insights that inspire further explorations. Contributions represent a step towards the development of innovative policies for improving health and wellbeing in our cities, addressing indoor and outdoor lighting.
