ERC Advanced Grant for René Janssen (TU/e) and his research on more efficient solar cells

René Janssen (TU/e) received an ERC Advanced Grant for his research on perovskite solar cells. His aim is to produce solar cells with perovskite that are up to twice as efficient as current solar panels which are made of silicon.

The grant of three million euros is awarded by the European Research Council (ERC), and it is intended for established scientists with groundbreaking, high-risk research proposals. The award is a personal grant, and the researcher can use the funding for his or her research over the next five years.
