Strategic Energy Resources Limited has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Graphitech Pty Ltd, has signed an agreement with Monash University (effective from 29 May 2014) to enable the advancement of its unique applications for the new wonder material Graphene.
Highlights of the agreement are:
- Term - 5 year rolling agreement
- SER/Graphitech will have a first right to fund any related research
- A Licence is in the last stages of finalisation between SER/Graphitech and Monash University in relation to intellectual property (IP) generated from the project titled "Nanotechnology enabled electrochemical energy storage materials from indigenous natural graphite" that was the subject of the 2011 Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Agreement (ref LP110100612)
This Agreement follows the successful arrangement SER has had with Monash for the past 3 years, where both worked on Graphene Nano technology and super capacitors, under the Australian Government's ARC Linkage grant scheme. SER and Monash University were the first and only recipients of the grant for graphene research. We will be reporting on the well advanced results of this ARC project soon.
The project team is headed by Dr Mainak Majumder from the Department of Engineering at Monash University. His main research interests are in graphene-based electrochemical energy storage technologies, functional Nanomaterials and desalination.
The research projects will focus on generating IP with a view to commercialising products or applications derived from grapheme.
SER/Graphitech will have an exclusive worldwide licence to the research projects IP which will enable Graphitech to sub-licence, develop or sell products emanating from this high tech research.
