Online workshop on nanotechnology and photovoltaics

(Nanowerk News) The ICPC-NanoNet project stimulates global networking in nanoscience and nanotechnology. This online workshop on Nanotechnology and PhotoVoltaics enables nanoscientists working in this field to meet and find out about each others’ expertise, infrastructure and research interests.
The invited speakers include Prof Dr Wim Sinke, who is a representative of the European Technology Platform on Photovoltaics, and Prof Dr Lucimara S. Roman from Brazil - a senior expert in nanotechnology for photovoltaics to stimulate intercontinental cooperation between Europe and emerging economies and developing countries. The prospective audience consists of nanoscientists specialising in photovoltaics from Europe and International Cooperation Partner Countries to the EU (emerging economies and developing countries).
12.45- 13.00 System Check, welcome participants, about ICPC-NanoNet (Ineke Malsch)
13.00-13.30 Nanotechnology for high-performance and low-cost PV technologies; conclusions from the Strategic Research Agenda of the EU PV Technology Platform (Prof Dr Wim Sinke, UU, ECN, Netherlands)
