EuroNanoForum 2017 gathered more than 1000 participants in Valletta, Malta 21-23 June 2017.

Over 1000 participants from 50 countries met in Malta to discuss the role nanotechnology plays in the development of the sustainable world. The conference brought on stage 70 speakers in 3 plenaries and 15 sessions.

During a session “Advanced materials and nanotechnologies for low carbon green energy” speakers, among whom was Artur Kupczunas, investigated the different ways low carbon energy technologies rely on advanced material solutions to achieve cost reduction, higher performance, longer lifetime and reduced resource dependency. Sophie Mailley, Project Manager at CEA, Alejandro Perez-Rodríguez, Head of Solar Energy Materials & Systems Group at IREC, John Bogild Hansen, Senior Research Engineer at Haldor Topsoe A/S and Artur were discussing advanced material solutions developed, manufactured and commercialized by Europe-based high tech industry and how they will improve in the future the whole value chain of energy production and delivery.

Main conclusions from this session have been summed up by in an article “Printed solar cells thinner than your hair could power your phone” featuring also our technology.
