The INTERREG project Rh(e)in-Solar focuses on the development of an emergent photovoltaic technology implementing organic molecules to convert light into electricity. The so-called “Organic Solar Cell technology” is an outcome of recent multidisciplinary research activities, performed worldwide, on the development of photoactive molecular and polymer semiconductors, and their utilization as active material in opto-electronic and photovoltaic devices. About fifty researchers, engineers, students and technicians, working in thirteen public research institutions, clusters and private companies, all located in the Upper Rhine region, participate to the RH(E)IN-SOLAR project and join their efforts to boost the development of efficient organic solar modules. By bringing together a broad field of scientific skills and technical means in a geographically confined region, the project partners endeavor to speed-up the resolution of major bottlenecks that currently limit the development of organic photovoltaics and to establish favorable conditions for innovation and technological transfers in the Upper Rhine region.
