Dyesol and CSIRO have completed their contract for a collaboration toward the development of higher performing dyes. The two-year project will be funded by an investment of up to $1.17 million from CSIRO’s Australian Growth Partnership (AGP) program. The collaboration involved the purchase of a Dyesol Laboratory solution by CSIRO.
Dyesol Australia’s acting CEO David Bundy said: “This project builds on the foundations of Dyesol’s commercialization strategy in which partnerships with global companies such as CORUS (Tata Steel) and the collaboration with Pilkington NA, are complemented by programs with technology leaders like CSIRO providing us both with access to valuable IP in higher performing materials as well as powerful access to high value markets.”
Dyesol will project manage a team of scientists from CSIRO for an agreed development program, which targets the development of new intellectual property that Dyesol hopes to use in its DSC PV market position. Under the terms of the agreement, Dyesol can exclusively access the project IP.
