Event Details

Kent State University will host this third annual symposium to celebrate its traditional strength in advanced materials and further launch its major research and development initiative in photovoltaic technology that is enabled by flexible materials. The symposium will bring together academic and industry researchers, regional business leaders and students who have an interest in the science and promising new technology of organic photovoltaics (OPV). This event is free and open to the public.

The symposium will provide a platform for local and national research and industry leaders to discuss opportunities and hurdles inherent in organic photovoltaics, including research, development and manufacturing challenges. With eight thought-provoking presentations, posters and a reception, this symposium is certainly a must-attend.
