Online School

The 2nd School on Hybrid, Organic and Perovskite Photovoltaics (HOPE-PV20) will run online from 3rd to 5th November (see time).

The additional off-line session will take place on 6th November at the Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics of Russian Academy of Sciences in Chernogolovka, the program is available here.


The HOPE-PV 2020 will cover the most recent trends in the development of emerging photovoltaic technologies utilizing different types of organic and hybrid materials. A particular focus will be made on design and advanced characterization of new materials for solar cells as well as promising strategies for improving device efficiencies and extending their lifetimes. Technological approaches to upscaling flexible organic and perovskite solar cells, enabling their large-scale production using high-throughput roll-to-roll coating and printing techniques and perspectives of their commercialization will be discussed.

The scientific program of HOPE-PV 2020 will include plenary, tutorial and invited lectures given by world-leading experts in emerging photovoltaic technologies. All registered participants are encouraged to contribute by presenting short oral talks (limited number of slots available in the program) or posters.


  • Perovskite solar cells

  • Organic solar cells

  • Hybrid (e.g. quantum dot) solar cells

  • Dye sensitized solar cells

What do I need to join?


In order to register to the conference, you need to sign up and buy your ticket.

Submit your contribution

Once you are registered you will be able to submit your contribution in the ‘Abstract Submission’ tab. You can submit:
