Belgium-based nanotechnology research center imec and Kuwait University have signed a long-term collaboration agreement for the research and development of innovative silicon solar cell technologies.

The basis of the collaboration between imec and Kuwait University is imec's wafer-based silicon solar cell industrial affiliation program. By joining this program, Kuwait University is expected to acquire and build knowledge and expertise in advanced silicon solar cell processing technology.

Resident researchers from Kuwait University will collaborate closely with imec researchers at imec's facilities in Leuven, Belgium, and in Kuwait.
