Leading solar fuels since 1994



The Swedish Consortium for Artificial Photosynthesis is a collaborative research environment with the purpose of advancing the science and utilization of solar fuels - fuel from solar energy. We bring together leading scientists with expertise in molecular biology, biophysics and biochemistry, synthetic chemistry and chemical physics. Together we do fundamental and applied research, developing solutions for a sustainable future. 


Inviting you to 

While waiting for the on-site ISF conference series to resume, we are co-organizing an online Solar Fuels conference together with the Royal Society of Chemistry and CNRS Grenoble Alpes, ISF 2021.

The conference will host some of the leading solar fuels researchers from around the world. It promises to be a great forum to bring together research leaders and young scientists to discuss the main issues surrounding climate change and energy supply. 

Immediately preceding the main conference, will be the Young conference. The Young conference aims to give as many young researchers as possible the opportunity to present, and will also include keynote talks from mentoring experts and careers advice from the RSC.

SUNERGY Sweden Event

 On 20th of April, 60+ participants joined the SUNERGY online event for Sweden. A dedicated meeting for Sweden that was organized in the run-up to the upcoming calls of the 2021-2022 Horizon Europe work programme and the SUNERGY – CO2 Value Europe joint brokerage event.

The meeting was opened by Ann Magnuson, welcoming the participants and introducing the SUNERGY vision of enabling a fossil-free Europe through research and innovation. The event emphasized the important role that Sweden can play in this with its strong profile in renewable energy R&D. A summary of the event is found on the SUNERGY web page.

Presently the Swedish Consortium for Artificial Photosynthesis follows the official recommendations to practice social distancing, and to work from home when feasible. This means that all CAP meetings are planned to be held remotely until further notice. 

However, we continue to give scientific seminars/webinars, utilizing online meeting tools such as Zoom. So keep an eye on our calendar and check in on our News and Events page every now and then, to see what's next.

Stay safe!
