Keynote featuring Merck’s Dr. Nicolas Blouin

Our keynote will feature Dr. Nicolas Blouin, Head of Photovoltaic Chemistry at Merck KGaA of Germany, the world’s oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company. He will discuss Merck’s efforts to accelerate commercialization of OPV products by focusing on the formulation of active materials for industrial coating and mass-production of OPV modules.

Tell us about your work in OPV

The submission window to speak at the workshop is now closed. However, we ask that any Canadian researcher or research group, and any industrial company with Canadian operations active in this space, submit an outline of their OPV-related capabilities and activities in Canada. We will develop a directory of Canadian OPV capability from these submissions. Any CPEIA Member with products and activities in this area should submit, even if they are not headquartered in Canada..
