What is Eurosunmed?

EUROSUNMED is a 4-year collaborative project supported by the FP7 Programme of the European Commission. This innovative project is targeting the following objectives:

  • Developing new technologies in 3 energy field areas, namely photovoltaicsconcentrated solar power and grid integration, at the EU research centres, national agencies and SMEs in strong collaboration with MPC universities, research organizations and SMEs from Morocco and Egypt.


  • Testing innovative components (PV cells/modules, heliostats…) under specific conditions of MPCs (irradiation, hot climate, dust…).
  • Establishing a strong network between EU and MPCs through exchange of students, senior researchers/engineers for transferring knowledge and technologies.


  • Disseminating the results of the project through the organization of scientific events open to a large public from universities, engineering schools and stakeholders.



The project is coordinated by Icube (CNRS-University of Strasbourg, France). Contact: Abdelilah Slaoui, abdelilah.slaoui@unistra.fr
