Online Conference

You are invited to participate in the 13th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics (HOPV21), from the 24th to the 28th of May 2021. This conference will take place online.

Recent   research   progress  in   the   field   of   HOPV  is   marked   by  important breakthroughs   towards  their   use   for   a   sustainable   future.   Relentless   endeavours   helped   to   achieve   high   efficiencies   and  stabilities   with   perovskite   solar   cells,   organic   phototovoltaics   and   dye   sensitised   solar   cells  in  outdoor   and  indoor   environments.   Cross-disciplinary   fundamental   understanding   and   modelling  of   photophysical   processes,   as   well   as  improvements  in   manufacturing   solutions   for   mass  production   are   crucial  in   order   to   continue   the   drive   towards  lower   costs,   while   maintaining   high  levels   of   scientific   understanding.   This  is   traditionally   where   the   ongoing   front-end   research  is  presented.   Leading   experts  in   the   HOPV   field   come   together   from   academia   and  industry   and  will   be   gathered  in   an   “online”   format  in   order   to   discuss   novel   research,   concepts,   theory   and  developments  in   hybrid   photovoltaics.   Additional   perspective  is   offered   on   the   advantages,   the  current   trends  in   relation   to   different   materials   and   applications,   namely   halide   perovskites,  organic   materials,  light-absorbing   dyes,   quantum   dots,   tandem   /   multi-junction   solar   cells   and  solar-driven   catalysis. 

MAESTRO Workshop 24th May

This workshop is a showcase for research done by the European Training Network MAESTRO (MAking pErovskiteS TRuly explOitable) which will take place on Monday 24th of May from 12:00-16:00h CEST. Attendance at the workshop is free to all who register for HOPV21.



You can find all the information in the Maestro Perovskite Research Seminar 'tab'.

How can I participate at the conference?


To register you should login with your nanoGe account and purchase your ticket at the 'Registration' tab.

Submit your work

Once you have registered you can submit your contribution in the ‘Abstract Submission’ tab. There are two types of Contributions:

  • Contributed Talk
  • ePoster

Following the publication of the program the Contributed Talk not accepted can be presented as an ePoster. Please read further information at the ‘Instructions for Authors’ tab.

Please check the submissions’ deadlines.

View the Conference

Login at nanoGe to see the ‘Virtual Room’ tab which is only available for registered users.

In this tab you can watch the Live Conference, view the pre-recorded content of our Authors and access the ePoster platform.

You can also access to all the contents of the conference for two weeks after the end of the sessions.
