2nd International School on Hybrid, Organic and Perovskite Photovoltaics (HOPE-PV 2020)

Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend The 2nd International School on Hybrid, Organic and Perovskite Photovoltaics (HOPE-PV 2020), which will run online from 3rd to 5th November. The additional session will take place on 6th November at the Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics of Russian Academy of Sciences in Chernogolovka.


Last year, the 1st School HOPE-PV 2019 was organized in Moscow and brought together almost 100 prominent lecturers and young scientists from >10 countries. The opening plenary lecture was given by Prof. Tsutomu Miyasaka, who reported the first ever perovskite solar cells. This year, in the view of the covid19 pandemic situation, the HOPE-PV 2020 is organized in a hybrid mode.

The HOPE-PV 2020 will cover the most recent trends in the development of emerging photovoltaic technologies utilizing different types of organic and hybrid materials. The scientific program will include plenary, tutorial and invited lectures given by renowned speakers on the following major topics:

  • Perovskite solar cells;
  • Organic solar cells;
  • Hybrid (e.g. quantum dot) solar cells;
  • Dye sensitized solar cells;

Participants of HOPE-PV 2020 are encouraged to present short oral contributions or posters. The official language of HOPE-PV 2020 is English.
