The 11th edition of the International School on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics (ISOPHOS®) and the 4th edition of the School on Advanced Materials for Photonics, Electronics and Biolectronics will be held in Arbatax, a small and nice city in the East Coast of the marvelous natural scenery of Ogliastra province (Sardinia-Italy), from the 3rd till 7th of September 2017 (Sardinia - Italy).
The school location will be in the exclusive village Arbatax Park Sardinia Resort, a sprawling and comfortable seaside resort located in the East side of the beautiful Capo Bellavista promontory.
ISOPHOS is organized by the Center for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy (CHOSE) of the Lazio Region - University of Rome Tor Vergata and its start up company Cicci Research.
MAPHEBIO is organized by the University of Cagliari, the University of Bari Aldo Moro, the University of Rome Tor Vergata, the Salento University, the ISMAC, ICCOM and NANOTEC institutes of CNR (the Italian Research National Council) and the IIT (Italian Institute of Technology @POLIMI).
The school is focused on recent advances in (a) science and technology of organic and hybrid photovoltaic devices, including small molecules, polymers, perovskites, dye solar cells and the use of Graphene and other 2D materials for energy applications and (b) recent advances in materials for Photonics and Electronics, including Bio-electronics.
Introductory and advanced lectures, held by world-recognized experts, will lead the attendee to this fascinating world. This is a unique opportunity to allow people from the different areas of research (chemistry, physics and engineering) to meet together and discuss about the subject.
Moreover, representative of several EU projects will be present at the school to allow and easy interaction between different research activities.
The school is sponsored by the European research projects CHEOPS, Graphene Flagship, Destiny and CHEETAH, the EU COST Action StableNextSol, the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) and the Italian projects PRIN-Aquasol (Aqueous processable polymer solar cells: from materials to photovoltaic modules), PRIN-PERSEO (Perrovskite-based Solar cells: towards high efficiency and long-term stability) and "Research on innovative photovoltaic technologies" funded by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development.
The school is targeted to Master’s Students, PhDs, Post Docs and Researchers who are interested to acquire an updated knowledge in these fields. Moreover, a special session will give to students the opportunity to present their own work to share ideas and solutions.
