First European Conference on PV Research Infrastructures: - How to keep European R&D at world-class level? - What is the best way to support innovation in the PV industry? - Should PV research infrastructure for quality & reliability be linked worldwide? - Can Big Data bring big advantages in the area of solar PV system monitoring? Join this event to exchange about these subjects and make proposals: January 22nd, 2015 Save the date! Chambéry, France First European Conference on PV Research Infrastructures Photovoltaic Research Infrastructures as a support to solar PV R&D, industry and market development Context: The SOPHIA Research Infrastructure project is now coming to an end. Focused on research infrastructures for 8 PV topics with 20 European partners, the results achieved after 4 years of activity in trans-national access, exchange and R&D will be presented as “lessons learned”. The CHEETAH project has just been launched and can take over SOPHIA achievements to a next level with even more partners involved (35). Objectives: This conference will: - highlight the main outcomes of the SOPHIA project and make proposals based on the lessons learned - provide a forum for discussion on the type of PV research infrastructures and e-infrastructures required in Europe for the next decade covering several aspects: 1. R&D needs (upgrade, access, coordination, etc.) 2. Support innovation in the PV industry (pilot lines in particular, reliability and quality issues) 3. Training needs 4. Support to market integration (monitoring and management of millions of PV systems) About SOPHIA project: Strengthening and optimizing PV research capabilities, by bringing together the main European Photovoltaic Research Infrastructures and provide the scientific community with common referential. About CHEETAH project: Cost-reduction through material optimisation and Higher EnErgy outpuT of solAr pHotovoltaic modules - joining Europe’s Research and Development efforts in support of its PV industry.
