The prize is awarded to Daniel Lincot, CNRS Research Director.
He has been conducting research on photovoltaic solar energy since 1978. He is at the origin of innovations in the field of thin film processes and materials. He has also made a decisive contribution to structuring the field at the research-industry interface with the creation of dedicated institutes, the Photovoltaic Energy Research and Development Institute (EDF/CNRS/Chimie ParisTech-PSL) in 2002, then the Institut photovoltaïque d’Île de France (IPVF) in 2013, of which he will be the scientific director until 2019. He is currently pursuing an industrial innovation project.

Since 1979, the Academy of Sciences has been awarding the “Ivan Peyches Prize” every year. This prize is intended to “reward work relating to applications in the study of non-metallic materials, particularly vitreous materials or solar energy or, failing that, in the field of applied sciences”. Since 1992, the school in Villevaudé (Seine-et-Marne) has been named after Ivan Peychès, in homage to the academician who lived in this commune from 1947 until his death on September 30, 1978.
