This short paper presents the objectives and the planned activities of the PVNET project, which is running from 1 December 2001 to 30 November 2003.

The main objective is the draft of a roadmap for PV R&D based on a broad consensus within the European PV community. This will lead to an increase of vitality and competitiveness of European PV industry through the formation of a comprehensive strategy for research, marketing, products, human resources and development by formulating a viable strategy for directing the future of European RTD in photovoltaics. It will widen the view of industry and researchers inside photovoltaics to technologies and developments outside their specific field which can accelerate the development of a self sustaining PV market. .
