Erlan­gen. From Novem­ber 23-25, 2016, Bay­ern Inno­va­tiv will orga­ni­se the con­gress „Next Genera­ti­on Solar Ener­gy meets Nano­tech­no­lo­gy”. The focus of this con­gress lies on cross-linking at an ear­ly sta­ge world-class sci­ence and busi­ness in the area of next genera­ti­on ener­gy to fur­ther enhan­ce tech­no­lo­gi­cal and com­mer­cial explo­ita­ti­on.

The con­gress will offer an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about latest deve­lo­p­ments in the field of next genera­ti­on ener­gy, essen­ti­al­ly pho­to­vol­taics. In addi­ti­on, the pro­ject asso­cia­ti­on UMWELTna­no­TECH will pre­sent their results. The asso­cia­ti­on aimed to deve­lop envi­ron­ment­al­ly safe app­li­ca­ti­ons for orga­nic pho­to­vol­taics (OPV), ener­gy sto­rage devices, and ther­moelectrics.

In the con­text of 15 slots the fol­lowing topics will be dis­cus­sed:

  1. OPV (mate­ri­als, devices, mul­ti­junc­tions, pro­ces­sing)
  2. Per­ovs­ki­te (mate­ri­als, devices, pro­ces­sing)
  3. Next Genera­ti­on Con­cepts (Up & Down Con­ver­si­on, inter­band con­ver­si­on, hot car­ri­er rela­xa­ti­on, TT Har­ve­s­ting, …)
  4. Solution-processed quan­tum dots, col­lo­idal and nano­st­ruc­tu­red “Solar Ener­gy Har­ve­s­ting”
  5. High and low T “Solar Water Split­ting”
  6. Ener­gy sto­rage devices and ther­moelectri­ci­ty

Con­gress par­ti­ci­pants will bene­fit from gre­at net­wor­king oppor­tu­nities and can find new part­ners from sci­ence or indus­try for their pro­jects.

At its stand, the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy will give insights into dif­fe­rent solar energy-related rese­arch fun­ding pro­gram­mes of the EU, Ger­ma­ny and Bava­ria. In addi­ti­on to that, the Agen­cy will deli­ver infor­ma­ti­on on its ser­vice port­fo­lio ran­ging from sup­port in the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess and inter­na­tio­nal part­ne­ring to tech­no­lo­gy trans­fer and patent explo­ita­ti­on.
