Key Grants and Programmes
Application Targeted and Integrated Photovoltaics (ATIP) - Enhancing UK Capability in Solar
£6 million Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) programme grant to advance organic and perovskite solar cells into applications that current solar technologies are not suitable for.
The research is closely supported by 12 key industrial partners. The main objective is to deliver the underpinning science and engineering to drive the uptake of next generation organic photovoltaics and perovskite photovoltaics (PV) into integrated applications of clear technological need.
GIST-Imperial International R&D Centre on Plastic Electronics
$2.5M for 6 years ($1M to Imperial) to develop flexible and printed hybrid photovoltaic modules with ultrahigh efficiency, long-term stability and large-area reproducibility. The Global Research Laboratory (GRL) grant is one of the two largest grants in Korea to support international collaboration, funded by the Ministry of Science, ICT & Future Planning (MSIP) / National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF).
The GRL project will focus primarily on combined perovskite / organic solar cells, so aligning with a broad range of research ongoing in the CPE.
