CrystalClear is one of the first Integrated Projects to be carried outin the 6th Framework Program of the European Union. It runs from 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2008. CrystalClear is intended to be the main vehicle for EU-supported research and development on advanced industrial crystalline silicon PV technology. This paper provides comprehensive information on the project background and aims, the management structure, and the research program. Some best practices are described for use in ongoing and future EU projects. In addition, the paper gives selected results obtained in the first stage of the project. For a detailed description of publishable research results the reader is referred to the list of publications that can be accessed through the CrystalClear public website.
