HOPV Conference - 5 to 8 may 2013 - Seville, Spain

October 25, 2012

We would like to draw your attention to the forthcoming Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics 2013 Conference (HOPV13), which will be held in Seville, Spain, from 5 to 8 May 2013, see http://www.nanoge.org/HOPV13/index.php for further details.

Building on the success of the 2009-2012 previous editions, the HOPV2013 conference - chaired by Prof.dr. R.A.J. Janssen of TU/Eindhoven - represents a unique opportunity for researchers working in the HOPV field around the world for discussions of the latest developments in hybrid and organic photovoltaics.

Attendance to this conference is strongly recommended since it is closely related to the research activities and goals of our ORGANEXT-project.



From Picasso to printable electronics

October 22, 2012


Pecha Kucha Maastricht - 24 September 2012

One of the dreams of Picasso was to be able to paint with light. In the 1940's he created some light paintings together with photographer Gjon Mili by painting with a pen light in space.


During a PechaKucha Night in Maastricht last September our Organext project leader, Jean Manca, sketched the possibilities of Nano Technology for lighting, solar technology, electronic applications and more.

In the words of Jean Manca, "The possibilities are limitless", or maybe you prefer Picasso's expression "Everything you can imagine is real".

To find the link between Picasso and printable electronics, you can watch the full 6 minutes and 40 seconds Pecha Kucha presentation at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmd1uZU3rtY.
