About Establis

Earth receives enough sunlight in one hour to satisfy all human needs in a year. Using solar energy will reduce harmful CO2 emissions and resolve the forthcoming energy deficit. The market for stable, mass-produced Organic Solar Cells is estimated at one billion Euros by 2016.

More about Establis

Researchers social network

ESTABLIS will train a team of 11 PhDs and 4 Postdocs to become the scientific leaders in industry and academia. ESTABLIS Fellows will excel.

Research on organic solar cells

Complementarity is at the heart of Establis. To develop Organic Solar Cells requires a concerted combination of physical, synthetic and modelling capabilities. Establis members are working together–across preconceived scientific boundaries–to accelerate the production of Organic Solar Cells.

Partnerships & collaborations

Our Industrial Partners and Associate Partners ensure that the training and technology is economically feasible.

EU support

The EEC is constructively investing more than 3.9 M€ in Establis to train, research and collaborate at the highest international level and ensure our energy platform for the 21st century.

Scientific results


After have been sponsor and member of the organizing and scientific committees of last year edition (ISOS6), ESTABLIS partecipated at this year edition of the International Summit on OPV Stability (ISOS7) that had been hold from October 6 – 8th 2014 in Barcelona, Spain (organized by StableNextSol COST Action).


ISOS has been running since 2008 and has rapidly become one of the most attended workshops in the field, bringing together an expert community both from industry and academia. The program includes round table discussions and the limited number of participants creates a unique atmosphere for informal scientific exchange.

ESTABLIS was there with an invited speaker: Agnès Rivaton (ICCF, WP2 leader) with the talk "Is it possible to design stable conjugated polymers for efficient solar cells?"

and two poster, by Safakath Karutedath (ESR4) and Alberto Gregori (ESR2). Both of their poster had been selected for their scientific value and they had the chance to present their research with a flash talk.

Here you can see the on-stage live performance of our Safakath.
