George is an entrepreneur specialising in arts and technology, with a lifelong passion for the value of Australian innovation and the power of technology to change the world. Having spent the majority of his formative years finishing homework in his parents solar startup, George is no stranger to the value of hard work. George’s alma mater of Univeristy of Technology, Sydney instilled a strong relationship between academia and the workplace, now he is bringing the values instilled in him to firmly establish any startup’s presence in the marketplace.
Polycarpos Falaras is Research Director at the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos”-NCSRD (Athens, Greece), working on nanomaterials and nanotechnology-driven processes for solar energy conversion to electricity (third generation solar cells: perovskite, dye-sensitized, quantum dot,) and environmental protection (photocatalysis, membrane reactors). In parallel, he is teaching Physical Chemistry at the Hellenic Open University. Polycarpos was the Director of the Institute of Physical Chemistry at NCSRD (2007-2012) and has been involved (including coordination) in many EU (HORIZON 2020, FP7, FP6) and National projects. In 2014 he received the prestigious PSIPW “Alternative Water Resources” Award and since 2018 he has served as Associate Editor of Applied Catalysis B Environmental (I.F.:19.503) journal.
Dr. Enrico Leonardi is Technical Project Leader for Greatcell in Italy. Enrico has had a decade of post-doctoral experience with Greatcell Solar Italia SrL (GSI), involved in scale-up of DSC, development of perovskite solar cells, PSC module and device encapsulation, plus Perovskite panel realisation. He has developed the Hyperion series of LED based solar simulators. He is Technical and Project manager of EU projects for GSI.
Dr Andrew Koplick is a renowned expert in formulation of sol-gel precursors for production of electronic and optoelectronic thin films and has been associated with the founders of Greatcell Energy for over 30 years, inventing and developing alkoxides, perovskite chemistry and transparent conducting oxides for 3rd Generation PV and Electrochromic Smart Windows.
