IMEC house Kaneka's European joint research

European nanoelectronics research center, IMEC, and Japanese manufacturer of chemical specialties and solar cells, Kaneka Corporation, have announced a bilateral cooperation.
Under the agreement, Kaneka will incorporate its European Photovoltaics Laboratory at IMEC in Leuven, Belgium. Working in IMEC's facilities and collaborating with IMEC's experts, this will allow Kaneka to further improve its current thin-film solar cells and to develop next generation cells.

This agreement fits in the strategy of Kaneka to examine the expansion of its solar cell manufacturing capacity to 1 Giga Watt by 2015. The decision to establish a European lab was motivated by the need to have a presence, and in future also a production facility, close to the rapidly growing European PV market.
