Next workshop: 20th-22th of August 2018!. Contact us on workshop@infinityPV.com for more info.
infinityPV gives you the opportunity to become experienced with scaled processing of printed solar cells from A-Z. The manufacture of solar cells using printing techniques is an involved process where many steps enter. We offer you to gain experience with every step on the way from making materials and inks through printing to testing, packaging and integration of the final product. You will obtain solid know-how and we are of course always there to refocus your training in one or more areas that you were previously unfamiliar with or that you did not attend in your chosen workshop. If you complete our entire series of training modules you will become a R2R master of printed solar cells.
- Learn the basics prior to attending through our e-learning courses
- Learn the basics of designing your solar cells for a given purpose
- Learn the basic materials science behind the active ingredients
- Learn about inks and preparation of inks for different printing methods
- Roll-to-roll print the entire solar cell stack using a number of different printing and coating methods
- Test your printed solar cells using roll-to-roll methods
- Package your solar cells through roll-to-roll lamination
- Test and analyze your solar cells using a number of techniques (solar simulator, LBIC, stability testing)
- Learn how to cut devices from the roll and handle them using robotic systems
We offer a series of workshops that taken together schools you for the entire process. Many of our participants are already skilled in one of more of the professional disciplines that enter in the value chain for printed solar cells and we have therefore broken the entire process up into modules that as much as possible separates the disciplines allowing you to tailor your learning process to the skills you already have and the ones you need to acquire.
Training and learning
The workshops are all comprised of a theoretical part that you need to attend online prior to the physical workshop. You can always go back to these at any later stage to refresh your memory. The physical workshop is comprised mainly of practical laboratory work but also have a few theoretical sessions dedicated to instruction on the use of the specific equipment and the safety associated with it. Upon arrival and before any practical work can begin you need to have signed the responsibility declaration that is issued to you upon registration for one of the workshops.
Practical work - what you get
The table outlines the overall contents of the workshops that we offer. They can be chosen individually according to your needs. The 6 different modules we offer are action packed hands-on teaching that runs for 9 hours each day with a one-hour lunch break (lunch included). There is a maximum of 6 participants for each module. It is possible to get an exclusive workshop for companies and we can run them under a NDA. All materials and expenses are included during the day. Breakfast, dinner, accommodation and travel are not included.

Cost and registration
You can signup for the workshop by sending an e-mail to workshop@infinityPV.com for registration. Please include all your details, participant name, invoice address, mobile phone number, VAT number (for Europe) and which workshops you wish to attend. We will send an invoice and once paid you will be given access to our online teaching system where you will need to complete the e-learning courses and pass the exams prior to the workshop itself. You will also be issued with a registration form that needs to be signed, scanned and mailed to us prior to the workshop or handed to us at the very beginning of the workshop. infinityPV reserves the right to postpone a workshop until there is a sufficient number of registrants.
Students and ECTS points
We welcome students (we recommend the workshop for master or PhD level) to the workshop and offer a 25% discount student discount. The workshops may qualify for ECTS points depending on your specific university. At the end of the workshop we will issue a diploma stating the course objectives, time consumption, and ECTS equivalent. Please consult your local university regarding rules for external courses.
