The objective of the SOPHIA Research Infrastructure project is to strengthen and optimise PV research capabilities, mainly by coordinating efforts on important but precompetitive topics.

The SOPHIA project will address the issues of fragmentation and costly duplication of research at the European scale. Large research infrastructures working together will avoid the useless replication of a large number of small efforts.

The SOPHIA project aims at bringing together the main European Photovoltaic Research Infrastructures in order to provide the scientific community with common referential to conduct efficient and coordinated research work in the field of PV technologies.
