2024 Oxford Solar Research Symposium

Dear colleagues,

We would like to welcome all UK and International researchers to our 2024 Oxford Solar Research Symposium.


This Oxford symposium aims to bring together researchers from UNSW, CSRIO, and ANU in Australia, together for an exchange with the solar energy community in Oxford and the UK.


researching and developing technology for improved silicon solar cells. It promotes an informal exchange of technical and scientific information between international researchers in the field of Silicon Photovoltaics, through a combination of oral presentations and open discussions. Through this exchange the delegates aim to expand their knowledge of silicon photovoltaic technology, discuss the different technological challenges for future silicon cells, and propose solutions through the development of future research projects.

This symposium is jointly supported by the Oxford Materials Department, the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering, UNSW, and Wolfson College Oxford. Information on the symposium is included below.




Registration for this event is now closed.

Symposium Fees

This symposium is jointly funded by UNSW and Queens College Oxford, and there is therefore no registration fee. However, we aim to provide catering during the two days of the symposium, and for this we may charge a small fee. Depending on the number of attendees, a nominal catering fee between 30-80£ will be asked from each delegate, which will be used to provide warm lunch, and two coffee breaks. This fee will be payed directly to the Materials Department, and invoices can be provided.

Organised by Matthew Wright and Sebastian Bonilla, University of Oxford.
