Thursday June 10

Workshop
9:00-12:00 (SE)
16:00-19:00 (JP)

Workshop: How to plan your research impact with UCD impact planning canvas 

Impact Planning Canvas is a tool for identifying the possible impact and planning for how you can achieve it in the best way. Based on research results and on the researcher’s terms. After an introduction of the concept as well as being introduced to the tool you will have the possibility to use your own research as a base for the exercise. The session will be held in break-out room where practical help and guidance from an experience innovation advisor will be given for individual support.

Facilitator: Urban Bergquist, Linnaeus University


Academia/Industry Matchmaking Event
9:00-12:00 (SE)
16:00-19:00 (JP)

Artificial intelligence and the future of healthcare for older populations

The MIRAI2.0 Innovation and Entrepreneurship Advisory Group (IEAG) organises a matchmaking event that will offer a great opportunity for academics, researchers, and industrial players from both countries to network, present research progress and address new challenges, while identifying potential ideas for future collaboration and seed projects.

Following the event, VINNOVA, the Swedish government innovation agency, will launch a call for proposals to award funding to new collaborations between Sweden and Japan in AI, Ageing, Sustainability, Materials Science and Innovation/Entrepreneurship.

SPEAKERS


Charlotte Platzer-Björkman

Professor, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Division for Solar Cell Technology, Uppsala University

Charlotte Platzer Björkman is professor in solid state electronics at Uppsala University. After undergraduate studies in engineering physics, she did her PhD at Uppsala University on atomic layer deposition of ZnO-based materials for thin film solar cells. She did a post doc at the Institute for Energy Technology in Norway, working on metal hydrides and silicon solar cells, followed by faculty position at Uppsala University in 2010 and professor position since 2016. She is recipient of a Wallenberg Academy Fellows grant, SSF Future Research Leader grant, Thuréus award and Göran Gustafsson young researcher award. She is currently deputy dean of the faculty of science and technology at Uppsala University.

Radiation hardness of thin film solar cells
Thin film solar cells have advantages over crystalline silicon solar cells due to reduced materials and energy need in production, and possibility for flexible and lightweight products. The two main commercial technologies, CdTe and Cu(In,Ga)Se2(CIGS), have both demonstrated efficiencies in the lab of over 23%, as compared to 26% for c-Si. Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) is studied as a potential alternative material based on only abundant and non-toxic elements. A well-known property of CIGS is the radiation hardness, giving potential for space-applications. Our initial studies of the radiation hardness of CZTS, using proton and electron irradiation, showed equal or superior hardness, including strong self-healing. Possible reasons for this behavior will be discussed.
