The National PhD on Photovoltaics is proposed to respond to the request that comes from many parts, not only at a national level, but also at the international one. Photovoltaics, in fact, represents one of the pillars of the energy transition and play a key role in achieving the objectives of the European Green Deal. The recent international crisis and its effects on Europe’s supply of fossil fuels is leading to a further acceleration of the transition, to the advantage of technologies, including photovoltaics, which have reached great technological maturity and which can provide answers to the demand for energy in a short time. In Italy, 400 million euros will be dedicated to achieving the national target of 2 GWp of annual production capacity by December 2025. Following the crisis linked to the supply of natural gas and oil, Europe has set itself an even greater target ambitious, which is the achievement of 1 TWp of photovoltaic capacity by 2030.
As a result of these investments, 178.000 new jobs are estimated to be created in Europe. The training of the professional figures necessary to face this effort is the object of attention by the European Commission. The Photovoltaic National Doctorate is part of this trend, aimed at the third-level training of professional figures who will strengthen the Italian R&D and industrial chain in the photovoltaic sector.
