Dear Kesterite researchers,

The 7th European Kesterite Workshop will be held from 17th to 18th of November 2016 in Leuven, Belgium, at Imec's premises. We are looking forward to another inspiring meeting to discuss the latest results, current problems and future needs with regards to Kesterite materials and solar cells. The aim of the Workshop is to provide a forum to stimulate discussion on current issues to improve understanding of Kesterites.
Travel information: The city of Leuven is conveniently located near Brussels, where there is Brussels International Airport. Brussels International Airport has its own railway station located in the airport building, where you can take a direct train to Leuven. We compiled a selection of – well situated – hotels in Leuven where you receive some discount.
