About the employer

The Institut Photovoltaïque d’Île-de-France (IPVF) aims to become one of the world’s leading research, innovation and training centres in the field of photovoltaic solar energy by federating globally-acknowledged academic research teams and industrial groups leaders in the photovoltaic sector.

IPVF intends to enhance the performances and competitiveness of photovoltaic cells and to develop new breakthrough technologies by focusing on three drivers:

  • A RESEARCH PROGRAMME concentrating on high conversion efficiencies, low production costs and compatibility with the sustainable development challenges of the systems and processes developed.
  • AN EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH RESOURCE FACILITY An experimental research resource facility open to photovoltaic sector players, concentrating leading-edge research equipment in a dedicated building able to host partner researchers.
    This resource facility is continually evolving to tailor to research project needs and to remain at the cutting edge of technology.
  • A TRAINING PROGRAMME based principally on a Master’s Degree, mentoring for PhD students and continuous training.

IPVF is supported by the French State within the “Investissements d’Avenir” (Investments for the Future) programme. Its regulatory authority is the French Secrétariat Général Pour l’Investissement (SGPI) (General Secretariat for Investment) which is one of the Prime Minister’s Departments.

IPVF was granted the status of Institut pour la Transition énergétique (ITE) (Institute for Energy Transition) by the SGPI.

Under this umbrella, it benefits from financial support from the Programme d’Investissement d’Avenir (PIA) (Investment for the Future Programme) headed by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) (National Research Agency), in the form of a €18.5M grant over the first six years of its existence.
