CHOSE - Center for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy

Reference address: Via Ardito Desio 60, 00131 Rome


Institution profile

The Center for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy (CHOSE) at Rome University, or "Tor Vergata", was created on December 2006 from a collaboration between the Lazio region of Italy and the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" sharing the considerable intention to realize a Centre of Excellence for the research and development of new generation solar cells based on organic and organic-inorganic hybrid technologies.
This is part of a larger strategy within the Lazio region of Italy in which other centers (on sustainable mobility and on hydrogen) have been funded to promote research and development into applied research and technology with industrial potential in the green energy sector.
CHOSE involves several research groups of Tor Vergata University from Electrical/Industrial Engineering to Chemistry and Physics and has collaboration agreements with several other universities and research centers in Italy, Europe and the rest of the world.
The main objectives of the center are:

  • Research and development in the field of organic and hybrid photovoltaics (OPV);
  • Definition of an industrialization process for OPV Technology transfer to large and SME;
  • Reference point at a regional level on photovoltaic technologies;
  • Participate in the Italian/European networks on photovoltaic technologies.
