We turn 40!
Celebrate with us our 40th anniversary
The Instituto de Energía Solar was founded back in 1979 by Prof. Antonio Luque. So, we are celebrating a big thing this year 2019. We turn 40! It’s been four decades of intensive photovoltaic research, education and cooperation with industry and partner academic institutions across the globe.
We intend this year to be a big celebration of great achievements, a chance to recall our history and also an opportunity to undertake a deep meditation about our future. Building on decades of world-class research in photovoltaics, today's IES-UPM tackles a range of scientific challenges with the common goal of accelerating the uptake of Photovoltaic Solar Energy as an instrumental energy source for humankind in the 21st century. Check out our research areas here.
As part of the celebration a few initiatives are running or will take place in the coming months:
Happy birthday IES-UPM!
