Partnering opportunity

Serbian institute is looking for commercial agent for specialized electrochemical instrument for measurement of voltage-current characteristics of Fuel Cells (FC)

Summary

The laboratory for physical chemistry of a Serbian R&D institute developed and produced a specialized electrochemical instrument for Fuel Cell (FC) testing and characterization of voltage-current curves. The instrument is in the form of a measurement station controlled by PC and represents a programmable current source. The laboratory is looking for commercial agents for marketing the instrument either as specialized electronic devices or educational sets inside or outside of the EU.

Partner sought

The partner should have experience in commercialization of specialized electronic equipment. The laboratory is looking for partners active both inside and outside European Union. The potential partner could give instruction for modification of the equipment in order include it in educational sets combined with equipment of other manufactures. For example, together with potential partner the laboratory could integrate our device into educational sets for universities demonstrating characterization of state-of-art devices (i.e., Fuel Cells).

Description

Serbian laboratory for physical chemistry is looking for a commercial representative of its specialized electrochemical instrument for Fuel Cell (FC) testing and characterization of its voltage-current curves. The instrument is developed and produced in Serbia. The laboratory is part of an institute attached to the university, and both the laboratory and institute have over 50 years of R&D tradition. The laboratory is accredited for physicochemical investigations (ISO 17025:2006) and quality management (ISO 9001:2008). The instrument consists of two parts: master application of virtual instrument on PC and micro-controller based system with a programmable current source. The main purpose of this instrument is to measure the voltage on the FC while modulating current with a programmable current source. In this way, the current-voltage and current-power curves are obtained giving valuable information about electrochemical processes in FC. The instrument could also be commercialized as part of the educational setting for the demonstration of using hydrogen as a fuel for the future. In the aim to commercialize the product outside of Serbia, the institute is looking for commercial representatives inside or outside the European Union. The potential partner should have experience in the commercialization of specialized electronic devices or educational sets for universities.

Advantages and innovations

The micro-controller based instrument is using the concept of a PC virtual instrument that gives simple integration with other electrochemical instruments in the laboratory. The instrument measures current-voltage characteristics of FC of power up to 80W. The instrument is portable and easy to implement in field measurements. The equipment is affordable also to small and school laboratories and could be modified based on demand to be included in educational sets combined with equipment of other manufacturers.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
