Project Structure

CEPHOMA stands for Centre for Photonics and Materials for Prospective Applications.

  1. Contract No: ENK5-CT-2002-80666
  2. 5th Framewok Programme of the EU
  3. Co-ordinator Jerzy Garbarczyk

Its program is divided into 7 work-packages:


Work-package No. Work-package title
WP1 Training of young scientists
WP2 Photovoltaic links
WP3 XVII School of Optoelectronics "Photovoltaics - Solar Cells and Infrared Detectors"
WP4 Improved co-operation in solid state ionics
WP5 Search for improvement of oxide ion conductors OXIONCON
WP6 Impedance spectroscopy - workshop and training of young scientists IMSPEMAS
WP7 Co-ordination of the Centre activities


Work-package WP1 is intended to promote international European exchange of young promising scientists and PhD students.
Work-packages WP2 and WP3 are directly related to the field of photovoltaics.
Three work-packages: WP4, WP5 and WP6 focus on tightening international European research collaboration on solid electrolyte and electrode materials for applications in batteries and fuel cells.
Progress of the CEPHOMA program is monitored by the International Advisory Board.
