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.


November 23 -25, 2016


Heinrich-Lades-Halle, Rathausplatz 1, 91052 Erlangen
