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.” 

MJR PharmJet moved to its new premises in Überherrn, Saarland under the structure of Instillo Group. Überherrn is in the triangle of Germany, France and Luxembourg. It is well connected with high ways and two international airports (Luxembourg and Frankfurt) and a regional one (Saarbrücken). The new premises has a lab capacity of 1000 m2, 500 mtechnical rooms and 350 m2 offices. Smart energy systems is integrated in the new buildings with photovoltaic arrays, block heat and power plant. Furthermore MJR PharmJet further strengthen development competence with the other members of the Instillo group, Quasaar and Nanosaar. Target investment of Instillo group to new promises is over 10 Mio Euro with in next 3 years with a provision of 70-80 new jobs.
