Trina Solar joins MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program


The official letter of agreement was signed today between Trina Solar and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which ties Trina Solar with the University’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP). The ILP is a program that looks to encourage university-industry collaboration and technology transfer.

“We are very excited to announce this collaboration with MIT, one of the world’s leading research institutes, which is expected to strengthen ties between Trina Solar’s State Key Lab of PV Science and Technology and MIT’s research teams,” said Jifan Gao, chairman and chief executive officer of Trina Solar. “Trina Solar and MIT share the same commitment to developing high quality solar electricity solutions for businesses and households worldwide and the Industrial Liaison Program is a great way to bring together top minds in the industry to help drive innovation.”

The agreement will see the ILP provide Trina Solar facilitated access to MIT and its resources such as technology conferences. It also holds the possibility that Trina Solar will be able to directly access research opportunities with MIT researchers.
