Government of Bavaria: Energieforschungsvorhaben
SolTech - Solar Technologies Go Hybrid


Solar Technologies Go Hybrid (SolTech)

SolTech is a € 50 million interdisciplinary project initiated by the State of Bavaria to explore innovative concepts for converting solar energy into electricity and non-fossil fuels. Research by chemists and physicists at five different Bavarian universities will be funded for an initial period of five years (2012-2021).
Each of the five universities has set up a well-equipped laboratory, the so-called key labs, integrated into existing internationally recognized research centres. The new laboratories will complement each other in terms of their individual research areas and will form a close-knit network. This network is intended to leverage the initial investment by initiating further innovative top-level research projects within the network of participating locations. In North Bavaria, research is focused on organic materials: Bayreuth will concentrate on polymers, while Wurzburg’s research will focus on small molecules that combine into larger functional units . In Erlangen, researchers investigate nanotubes and other materials. Finally, the two Munich Universities conduct research on inorganic materials and hybrid organic-inorganic nanosystems.

Funding period: 2012 - 2021
