22nd EU PVSEC - The most inspiring platform for the global PV solar sector

Taking place from 3rd to 7th September 2007 at the Fiera Milano in Italy, the 22nd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference will be the most important international Conference in the field of Photovoltaics.

The Conference will provide an excellent platform for dialogue and information exchange across the World. The ‘who is who’ of the PV solar branch will meet at Milan to discuss the latest developments in science and industry.


The five-day programme for the Conference will comprise:

- Plenary lectures focusing on the state-of-the-art and targets of PV

- Oral and poster presentations of specific research, development and demonstration projects, PV applications,

- PV markets

- Exhibition of PV products and services

- EPIA PV Industry Forum

- Workshops and Fora on specific PV issues

- Scientific and industry tours and a social programme
