Riccardo Riccitelli achieved the M.Eng. degree cum laude on Telecommunications Engineering at University of Rome, “Tor Vergata”. He received in 2008 in the same university the PhD degree in System Engineering. His graduate work has been focused on the realization and characterization of vacuum nano- and micro-electronic devices based on carbon nanotube (CNT) structures.
Currently, he is responsible for the design and development of the Pilot Production Line in Dyepower, a R&D Consortium founded with the purpose of realizing the first line for the fabrication of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) façades made by organic photovoltaic technology. He also coordinates the Product Development team with the aim of designing the BIPV device and defining the potential applications.
He collaborates with “C.H.O.S.E.”, the Center of Lazio District for the development and the research of the organic and the hybrid devices in the field of photovoltaic technologies. He is charter member and Executive President of DYERS s.r.l. a spin-off company of University of Rome, "Tor Vergata", involved in the materials production and measurement systems integration in the field of organic electronics.
He is collaborating with the organization of the association "FREEnergy" and he is one of the charter members of ISOPHOS: International School on Organic Photovoltaics held in Ventotene Island (Italy).
