White paper on failures of photovoltaic modules in the field - IEA supported by ERC

ERC StG CA2PVM outreach activity on Photovoltaic durability and reliability research in collaboration with the International Energy Agency. 

An open access report for policy makers, PV investors and researchers interested in failure mechanisms of PV modules in the field has just been released and is downloadable from this link:

MechTube - applied mechanics outreach for children

Hello everyone,

Professor Suo suggested that I share this speculative idea that I once posted on Applied Mechanics News here on iMechanica!

In the future, we would like to reach out to children as early as their elementary school years to get them excited about topics drawn from Applied Mechanics. One approach to this goal takes inspiration from the successful "Le main a la pate", or "hands-in-dough", program in France ( ), but extends the idea of hands-on science to take advantage of the internet.
