Welcome to the 2nd Nanotechnology for the Next Generation High Efficiency Photovoltaics Spring International School & Workshop!

This event continues on the previous successful NEXTGEN NANO PV International Spring School and Workshop held in Cargèse (Corsica, France) in April 1- 6 2013. The main aim is to review the state of the art and existing challenges related to the implementation of new nanotechnology based concepts for solving the main problems in the development of cost efficient and sustainable PV. The workshop will analyse and highlight the potential of these new nanotechnology concepts for successful industrial implementation into new competitive PV technologies for the EU industry. This approach follows the strategy of the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme for the 2014 – 2020 period to bring great ideas from laboratory to the market. At the same time, and unique in Europe, the School will provide a suitable platform for an efficient sharing of experience and visions between well known experts from different academic, research and industry groups and young researchers, to foster interaction and to contribute to bridge the gap between laboratory and market.
