||The EU PVSEC is the world’s largest conference in the field of photovoltaics and uniquely combines scientific, technological, industrial and application-related issues from the perspective of research and development, industry and policy. This year over 1,200 abstracts were submitted, involving 6,482 authors and co-authors from 88 countries. A scientific committee of 180 international experts checked and reviewed the suggested contributions. The resulting programme offers more than 1,000 keynote, plenary, oral and visual presentations, and is complemented by a series of presentations in several workshops, expert panels and specific industry fora. All this makes EU PVSEC an outstanding PV science-to-science and science-to-industry platform, covering PV topics from nano-materials to utility scale systems.
