Ynvisible Interactive Inc. and Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Sign Electrochromics Co-Operation Agreement
Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft - Europe’s largest institution for applied research - and Ynvisible sign a MoU in the field of electrochromic inks and devices.
The co-operation aims to accomplish several objectives related to the development and proliferation of electrochromic inks and devices. The agreement outlines that joint business explorations will be conducted, seeking to enhance commercial uses of Fraunhofer’s technologies and skills in electrochromics by combining them with Ynvisible’s technology and beyond. Developments will be jointly carried out by using a combination of each parties’ proprietary technologies, skills and capabilities.
In the collaboration Fraunhofer and Ynvisible will continue to carry out joint business planning and technology dissemination activities from their shared earlier work.
Ynvisible has previously worked with two Fraunhofer institutes: Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC and Fraunhofer Research Institution for Organics, Materials and Electronic Devices COMEDD. Collaboration has centered around two EU co-funded projects, EELICON and DecoChrom.
EELICON (Enhanced Energy Efficiency and Comfort by Smart Light Transmittance Control), was a Fraunhofer ISC led EU FP7 co-funded project, which ran from 2014-2017. The project consortium developed retrofittable light and heat blocking electrochromic films, which would be cheaper to produce than electrochromic glass and provide more opportunities for commercial applications. In the project Ynvisible participated in business planning activities and exploration of application possibilities in market areas outside of conventional smart windows.
