Training the next generation of scientists in solar chemicals for a sustainable Europe by hybrid molecule/semiconductor devices

Project description

Filling gaps in solar chemicals research

Solar chemicals are starting to play a continually bigger role as an ecologically safe energy source. Despite this and their capability for industrial and civilian use, the European industrial landscape has been lacking in research on solar chemicals. The EU-funded SOLAR2CHEM project aims to train 15 new researchers in state-of-the-art concepts and techniques with a focus on physical sciences to research on hybrid devices for producing solar chemicals. They will also take into account the environmental footprint in manufacturing, and promote the use of solar chemicals in both the European industry and the private sector.
