The project partners carry out a 3-years workplan to strengthen the Photovoltaics (PV) innovation-driven research and industry. The future of the PV sector is taken into focus starting from a regional level to transnational action. Central issue of the project is to develop and integrate a Joint Action Plan (JAP) which is set up based on regional analyses and innovation strategies. By close dialog with all triple helix stakeholders (business, research, and public authorities) the JAP will be implemented as a strategic instrument for the European PV Solar Energy clusters.
