CPVMatch has started on May 1st, 2015!

The project started on May 1st, 2015.

Four days later the project partners came together at the premises of Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, Germany for the official Kick-Off meeting. In a friendly and highly-motivated atmosphere the next steps and ideas to achieve the ambitious project goals were planned and discussed. Accordingly, the project team left with a long list of experimental work to be carried out in the various labs.

All partners are eager to work hard in order to present first scientific results already in October 2015 at the next project meeting at the site of RSE in Piacenza, Italy.
