VIPERLAB opens first call for proposals

The VIPERLAB Consortium (15 partners) has the vision that perovskite-based PV will enable a strong and viable European production base. Therefore, the VIPERLAB project brings together top-ranked, complimentary EU perovskite PV infrastructures, both physical and virtual, to foster perovskite PV development and testing in Europe in order to build a unified access service towards EU academic and industrial researchers.

The call for proposals opens on 15th October with a submission deadline on 30th November, 2021 (closing at 11.59.59 CET). Applicants will be notified of review outcomes in December 2021.

Starting scientific perovskite communities as well as industry and SMEs are invited to apply for free access to one of the top level infrastructures in the field of perovskite and silicon PV designed for:

  • material synthesis,
  • state-of-the-art device design and development,
  • standardized testing methods,
  • simulation methods, and
  • database.

The access is funded within the EU’s Horizon 2020 framework and includes the logistical, technological, and scientific support and the specific training.
