HOPE-PV 2019

Federal Research Center of Problem of Chemical Physics and Medicinal Chemestry RAS

Dear colleagues,

The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to attend The 1st International School on Hybrid, Organic and Perovskite Photovoltaics (HOPE-PV 2019). The School is organized by the Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics of Russian Academy of Sciences (IPCP RAS) and supported by Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), Severstal Ltd. and Russian Science Foundation.

The HOPE-PV 2019 will cover the most recent trends in the development of emerging photovoltaic technologies utilizing different types of organic and hybrid materials. The scientific program will include plenary, tutorial and invited lectures given by renown speakers on the following major topics:

  • Perovskite solar cells;
  • Organic solar cells;
  • Hybrid (e.g. quantum dot) solar cells;
  • Dye sensitized solar cells;

Participants of HOPE-PV 2019 are encouraged to present short oral contributions or posters. The official language of HOPE-PV 2019 is English.
