Since its start in 1994, Uniresearch, a SME located in Delft, the Netherlands, has become a successful and independent grants & innovation consultancy firm specialised in national and European grants in the field of innovation, research and technological development. UNR has a team of highly skilled consultants and project managers, bringing together a mix of technical, scientific and business administration backgrounds. Based on the experience gained in over 150 collaborative projects, UNR has developed many project management & dissemination procedures, structures and tools.
UNR has assisted in the development of the PILATUS project from co-drafting the concept of the project, the writing of the Horizon Europe proposal up to the Grant Agreement Preparation phase. In the field of PV, UNR was already involved in the NextBase project (H2020), which dealt with the development of innovative high-performance c-Si solar cells and modules based on the interdigitated back-contacted silicon heterojunction (IBC-SHJ) solar cell concept. To continue building a network in the PV-industry and help strengthening the PV-industry in Europe further, UNR has joined the coordination team in the PILATUS project to aid in making the project a success and achieve the ambitious objectives.
What in PILATUS?
UNR is the official coordinator of PILATUS, which means that it is in charge of the day-to-day management of the project. Next to the management activities of UNR in PILATUS, it is also leading the tasks on dissemination, communication and exploitation. Communicating and disseminating results of the project are key to ensure a good exploitation of results when the project has ended.
“We are honored to be part of the PILATUS project, helping the return of PV production value chain in Europe. In addition, the project vision, fits perfectly our main mission ‘Key to Innovation’ focusing on technological innovations and aiding sustainability.”
