1st HERCULES Workshop

A project-specific HERCULES workshop was held on 27 & 28 March 2015 in Konstanz, Germany, to showcase the results of the first 18 months of our project, and in order to provide a platform for discussion with an international audience from PV research and industry. Following the SiliconPV conference and integrated as a special day into the broader scope of the nPV workshop, it took place at the same venue, the Konzil.
