ITN planning workshop on X-rays for Solar Energy

Monday 23 September 2019, 9:00 to 12:00.


Purpose and scope:

The Solar Energy Platform organizes this satellite meeting at the MAX IV User Meeting 2019 to facilitate discussions and preparations for a Horizon 2020 funding application for an Initial Training Network (ITN). The ITN application will be aimed at building up a European consortium, including Swedish and European partners from research institutions, companies, and research infrastructure facilities, with expertise in training PhD students and early stage researchers in the use of X-ray techniques for research and development in solar energy materials. The workshop is open to researchers from Sweden and EU countries who are interested in PhD education and in synchrotron-based x-ray methods for solar energy research. We welcome in particular participants from the partner institutions of the ITN consortium.

The Solar Energy Platform (Solenergiplattformen) is a Vinnova-funded advocacy platform, aiming at raising Sweden’s Horizon 2020 participation in the area of solar electricity and solar fuel.


Invited speakers:



The organizing committee consists of three members of the Swedish Solar Energy Platform, based at three Swedish universities, with additional support from members of the consortium “Energy materials studies at MAX IV – Development of Solar Cells and Batteries”, a grant funded by the Swedish Research Council for accessibility support of research infrastructure, led by Håkan Rensmo, Uppsala University.
