Gips-Schüle Research Award

The 2015 Gips-Schüle Research Award in the amount of EUR 50,000 goes to the research project “Nanoparticles for the Environmentally Compatible Production of Organic Solar Cells” of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in cooperation with MJR PharmJet GmbH. The project in which engineers, physicists, chemists, and biologists cooperate is aimed at developing low-cost methods for the production of new solar cells without any solvents that are harmful to human health.

“Photovoltaics is a major component of electricity supply based on renewable sources. Current growth rates suggest that its relevance will significantly increase in the future. Hence, it is very important to use “green” technologies for production already,” the President of KIT, Professor Holger Hanselka, says. “The novel process developed by KIT in cooperation with industry is not only highly innovative, but also sustainable and inexpensive. The Gips-Schüle Research Award is a wonderful recognition of this great achievement.”
