PREIN Workshop on Photovoltaics

PREIN workshop on “Photovoltaics” will be organized online on Tuesday December 1st  2020, 10:00-15:00.  This event organised by Aalto University, aims at promoting communication and collaboration among groups working on photovoltaics-based research in PREIN Flagship.
Venue and format: Online virtual workshop in Zoom 

The event is free and open for interested parties, but online registration is needed.

Contributions from research field listed below are welcome: 

  • Solar cells (Si, III-V compound semiconductors, perovskites, etc.)
  • Photocatalysis (water splitting, CO2 reduction, N2 fixation, etc.)

The program will include two sessions dedicated to talks given by PREIN researchers in the field of photovoltaics. Presenations will be 20 minutes with 15 minute presentation and 5 minutes for questions. Questions can be presented by contacting the speaker(s) directly in the chat or via Zoom audio.
The traditional poster session is replaced with a slide-show session. The event can be followed via personal laptops anywhere.

Slide shows
An individual slide show (a substitute of poster) is a 3-5 pages summary of the main points of your work. Within a limited slide space, it should indicate who are involved, what is done, how is done, what are the results or expected results, and why they are important. These summaries are shown continuously in the lecture. Please send your summary (pptx format) to the organizers by email ( on Sunday, November 29, at the latest.
