Principle areas of collaboration

France’s National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and RCAST entered into a general agreement on May 24, 2012, to collaborate on research and development of new energies such as next-generation solar energy technology.

Through the international alliance program at CNRS, the Laboratoire International Associe (LIA) Next PV office was established at RCAST in October 2012 as a center for the research.

The center will focus on expanding collaboration on new energies, including biomass and hydrogen energy in addition to solar energy, in collaboration with laboratories and research institutions from within and beyond the University.
