Thought for the month

The Swiss Centre for Electronics & Microtechnology (CSEM) is leading project Sunflower, an EU Seventh Framework Programme, created to generate solar energy with highly efficient and recyclable printed plastic solar cells. Led by the CSEM, the project consortium includes industrial partners Agfa, BASF, DuPont Teijin Films and Konarka. The Euro 14.2M project is to develop advanced flexible plastic solar panels designed to be integrated into new consumer mobile applications and buildings.
