Within only a few years of systematic research, the unprecedented rise of metal halide perovskites (PSK) as a new class of photovoltaic (PV) absorber materials has considerably changed the PV roadmap when surpassing the efficiencies of inorganic thin film technologies such as Si and CIGSe. Although single junction PSK have reached a certified efficiency of 25.2% and PSK/Si tandem cells have achieved efficiencies over 29 % on small areas [1], the technology does not yet fulfil the requirements for mass-production, especially in view of the three targets - manufacturability, sustainability and stability. The VIPERLAB Consortium (15 partners) has the vision that perovskite-based PV will enable a strong and viable European production base. Therefore, the VIPERLAB project brings together top-ranked, complimentary EU perovskite PV infrastructures, both physical and virtual, to foster perovskite PV development and testing in Europe in order to build a unified access service towards EU academic and industrial researchers. The physical and virtual infrastructures provided, by 13 partners of VIPERLAB’s Consortium (Fig. 1), are complimentary and cover the whole value chain from material testing, over device processing to reliability testing of the technology. Access to these infrastructures will be provided through a single-entry point [2] for users within the whole European perovskite community, from academia, industry and other
