Next Generation Solar Energy (NGSE) is an international conference series organized by the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energies (HI ERN) in December as well as a PhD-Postdoc series organized twice a month.

This year the conference (NGSE7) will be held from 6th – 8th of December 2022 in hybrid format. This is the 7th edition of the NGSE conference, and will focus on the topic of “Machine learning method and high-throughput experimentation for material research”. The first two days will be divided into 4 sessions:

  • Material discovery & Machine learning.
  • Machine learning methods for material research.
  • High throughput experimentation and automation.
  • Machine learning for PV research.

On the last day two topic-specific workshops will be organized:

  • Emerging PV database workshop.
  • Transparent photovoltaic workshop.

To promote a more inclusive environment and reach a wider audience the conference will be held in hybrid. The broadcast will be via Zoom Webinar and will be completely Free for all after registration.

The conference offers an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest developments and current projects in the field of machine learning, high-throughput experimentation and photovoltaics. As well as the exchange of ideas and experiences with experts from around the world, particularly those who are in close collaboration with i-MEET, HI ERN and ZAE Bayern.


Participation in the NGSE 7 is free of charge!
