Online Conference

Welcome to the 13th International Online Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics HOPV21 our exciting new interactive platform coming to your screen from the 25th to the 28th of May 2021.

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 Satellite Workshop


The Maestro Perovskite Research Seminar will take place on Monday 24th of May from 12h CEST to 16h CEST. This workshop will be free of charge for all the HOPV21 participants. View more information.

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • New Materials and Concepts for Photovoltaic Devices
  • Characterisation: device physics, photophysics and materials properties
  • Stability of devices and materials
  • Modelling and simulations
  • Devices: single junctions, tandems and solar fuels
  • Applications: Modules, BIPV, IPV
