Summary

Summary: 
A Korean SME has specialized in manufacturing switchboards and automatic control panels since established in 1990. The company is planning on improvement of battery and renewable energy by submitting a proposal of Eureka/Eurostars2. Under research cooperation agreement, partners should lead the field of battery and renewable energy to apply on power transmission and distribution systems.

Description

Description: 

A Korean company was incorporated in 1990 and focused on development of technology applicable on power transmission and distribution system.

The company comes up with the idea of advanced technology in this field because many devices are turning into electronic products in the modern society, meaning that the demand of batteries is consistently increasing while the ratio of collection and recycling of used batteries is considerably low.

The company aims to solve the environmental problems as the use of heavy metals in the battery steadily increases and results in environmental pollution.

The company is seeking for partners to collaborate on introducing technology of collecting the batteries and recycling or extracting the heavy metals in the battery through the advanced technology of disassembling and recycling of the battery by submitting proposal of Eurostars2 or Eureka under research cooperation agreement.

Deadline for EOI: 15th May 2020
Deadline for Call: 15th June 2020
Project Duration: 104 weeks
