most remarkable and outstanding research work

To encourage high-quality work amongst young researchers, the EU PVSEC Student Awards were delivered in recognition of the most remarkable and outstanding research work in the field of PV.

Applications for the Student Awards were reviewed and scored by the international Scientific Committee, made up of more than 290 leading research and industry experts from the global PV community.

The prizes were awarded during the Closing of the Conference.
