Symposium on European Photovoltaic Research Infrastructures
22 Jan 2015
OtherS3P EnergyS3 Thematic Platform
With the SOPHIA Research Infrastructure project coming to an end, it is necessary to optimize the PV-strategy. SOPHIA focused on 8 PV topics with 20 European partners, and the results achieved after 4 years of activity in trans-national access, networking, training and R&D can provide valuable "lessons learned". How can these lessons be exploited best, to take forward European PV R&D to the targets foreseen in the SET-Plan Integrated Roadmap?
The goals of this symposium were to:
* 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
