International Summer School on Organic, Perovskite and Building Integrated Photovoltaics

We would like to invite you to the International Summer School on Organic, Perovskite and Building Integrated Photovoltaics. The event is coarranged by the photovoltaic research teams at DTU Fotonik, Risø Campus and at the Mads Clausens Institute at SDU campus Sønderborg. The school primarily addresses PhD students but others can attend.

Invited speakers, all recognized scientists from leading world laboratories, will give lectures covering topics from fundamental principles of conversion of solar energy into electrical energy as well as their technological applications in photovoltaics devices. Also maintenance of PV systems are covered.
