Description

SUNFLOWER is a collaborative research project of 17 partner institutions from science and industry. It is coordinated by the Swiss Research Centre CSEM and its goal is the development of highly efficient, long-lasting, cheap and environmentally friendly printed organic photovoltaic cells.

As a result of increasing prosperity more and more countries need more energy. The growth of the traditional industrial countries is based largely on energy from fossil fuels. But it is well known how much they pollute our planet.

That’s the reason why research in the area of alternative energy sources, as for instance solar energy, is strongly supported by the European Commission. Within the SUNFLOWER project, the consortium wants to make a significant contribution to the improvement of solar cells and helps to make them more efficient, thin, small and favourable.
