H2020 Grant for perovskite-based lighting, wearables and fabric devices with LiFi and photovoltaic capability has been approved and started April 1st 2020
Perovskites are an emerging technology for OLAE-based devices that have the potential to revolutionize the photovoltaic sector and also the lighting sector. They are a class of low-cost but high-quality materials which exhibit performance similar to “conventional” semiconductors while they can be processed by simple and cheaper means.
The EC is now boosting the impressive research activities in the field of perovskites by the PeroCUBE project, which is funded under Horizon 2020. On April 1, 2020, 14 European partners from industry and science in ten countries launched the joint project to develop new applications in the fields of lighting, photovoltaics and telecommunications. Researchers from the Fraunhofer FEP in Dresden are involved in the project and will contribute their expertise over the next 3,5 years.
PeroCUBE has two main objectives:
- producing efficient, simple and low cost light sources closer to natural light sources and
- supporting the development of more stable and sustainable, efficient and low-cost solar panels
