The School
is dedicated to PhDs, Post Docs and Researchers. A special session will give to students the opportunity to present their own work to share ideas and solutions.
ISOPHOS is focused on recent advances in science and technology of organic and hybrid photovoltaic devices, including polymers, perovskites, dye solar cells and the use of Graphene and other 2D materials for energy applications.

Castiglione della Pescaia, an ancient seaside town grew around a medieval fortress and a large fishery, from which it got its designation.


The European Training Network MAESTRO (MAking pErovskiteS TRuly explOitable) will generate new skills, knowledge and innovation in the exploitation of perovskite materials in solar power and efficient lighting through establishing exploitation paths for perovskite devices in an integrated unitary approach.
This Flagship aims to take graphene and related layered materials from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionize multiple industries. The mission of the Graphene Flagship is to take graphene and related layered materials from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionise multiple industries.
CHEOPS is a research project co-funded by the European research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. Based on the so-called perovskite PV technology, we aim to develop a novel type of photovoltaic cell - one that has the potential to be both low-cost and extremely efficient.

AUREL Automation is specialized in manufacturing of equipments & automation for electronics industry:

  • Machines for material depositions: screen-stencil printers, ink-jet, spraying, dispensing
  • Lasers for resistors trimming, marking, cutting, scribing
  • Handling for electronic substrates: ceramic, PWB, glass, silicon, metals, flexible
  • Ovens for drying, curing, soldering
  • Modular design and long experience are the response to successfull answer to many requests of automation in the electronic industry
In September 2011 professor Guglielmo Lanzani, director of the Center for Nano Science and Technology at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), meets Angelo Bartesaghi, the late president of OMET srl. The idea is to start exploring the possibilities of converting printing machineries into manufacturing tools for smart objects such as photovoltaic panels. This lead to the establishment of a joint OMET-IIT laboratory in Milan, focused on the R&D and technology transfer from lab scale to industrial-machinery scale. In March 2016 the R&D was successfully completed and Ribes Tech srl was founded, co-owned by OMET srl and former researchers from the IIT. Co-development of photovoltaic-powered products in the field of sensor network and Internet of Things has started and is presently being developed. Ribes Tech soon established several collaborations with top italian industries with the goal to demonstrate printed PV films integration into wireless electronic devices. This lead to co-development of several pre-industrial prototypes and the first product that will start commercialization during this year by ST Microelectronics.
FIBRAN S.p.A. Costituita nel 2004 a Genova, nasce dalla collaborazione fra Fibran S.A. e Link Industries S.p.A e lo storico Gruppo F.lli Cosulich. Dal 2009, anno di acquisizione dello stabilimento e della cava di gesso di Roccastrada (GR), ha rafforzato la sua proposta commerciale con soluzioni per le costruzioni a secco: lastre in gesso rivestito, intonaci, stucchi e accessori.
I prodotti della gamma FIBRAN presenti nelle tre divisioni FIBRANgyps -Sistemi costruttivi a secco, FIBRANinsulation - Isolanti in fibra minerale e polistirene, FIBRANinteriors - Controsoffitti prestazionali e di design sono distribuiti con diversi marchi commerciali.
