Registration now open! Summer School Quantsol

Learning in green surroundings: In 2014 the summer students came from all over the world to meet solar energy experts.

The International Summer School Quantsol will inform on basics in photovoltaics and solar energy conversion

For the eighth time already young solar energy researchers are invited to attend the International Summer School on Photovoltaics and New Concepts of Quantum Solar Energy Conversion (Quantsol). The school will be held from September 6th to 13th, 2015 in Hirschegg, Kleinwalsertal, Austria. The school is organized by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin together with the Technical University of Ilmenau. Application can be submitted through the school’s homepage until May 31st, 2015.

“The Quantsol summer school has become a “must” for the next generation of solar energy researchers” says Prof. Dr. Klaus Lips from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. “From the participating students we have received an overwhelmingly positive feedback and maybe that is one of the reasons that the school is always oversubscribed. The school addresses young postdocs, PhD students, and master students in their final year at university and we offer them a very comprehensive introduction into the field of photovoltaics and photocatalysis”.

Invited speakers, all recognized scientists from leading world institutions, will give lectures covering a wider range of topics on the fundamental principles of the conversion of solar energy into chemical and electrical energy as well as the physical and technical challenges. Another focus will be on material science and their specific characterization methods.

Further information on the Quantsol Summer School can be found on the homepage as well as in our flyer. Deadline for application is Mai 31, 2015. Here you get directly to the application form.

If you cannot attend this years’ Quantsol summer school – no worries - the next school is already scheduled for September 4th to 11th, 2016.
