Harnessing solar energy enables us to focus on energy security and move away from our dependence on an ever-depleting supply of fossil fuels from regions that are often destabilised through ownership of these resources. The Institute of Nanotechnology, as lead partner in the EU funded ICPC Nanonet project, is hosting a free webinar showcasing the African Network for Solar Energy (ANSOLE) and the research foci of its members.

The aim of the ANSOLE webinar is to stimulate networking and international research and development cooperation among experts in photovoltaics and solar energy and to promote the ANSOLE Days 2012 conference. It will also provide you with the opportunity to share your research with the global scientific community.

In addition, if you are involved in photovoltaics and/or solar energy research, you are invited to submit a short powerpoint (one or two slides) describing your current research and applications to share with other participants on the day in the Researchers’ showcase.

If you would like to attend, please register here: You will need to be a member of ICPC Nanonet to access the registration form. Membership is free.

To attend, all you require is a PC/laptop (not a Mac), a headset with a microphone, and a stable 2mb broadband connection (preferably wired). Full technical support will be given.
