In the last 26 months, the main actors of the project, Graz University of Technology, Talum d.d. and TIKO pro d.o.o. seeks to analyze as much as possible the existing technical solutions in the area of solar energy use in building envelopes. Monitoring development and thorough analysis are essential to developing innovative solutions that are indeed a revolution in this field.
Above all, the advantage of our cross-border platform, which we create throughout the project, is an effective network of knowledge created by experts from the project partners. The main objective of our joint efforts is to link R & D facilities with the industrial environment and research and development areas of STAF panels. Our goal is to create circumstances to harness R & D knowledge, the use of R & D infrastructure, the potential of researchers and practical knowledge of the industry. The majority of the R & D infrastructure relevant to our area is concentrated in the regional center of Graz, while the share in the Podravska region is much smaller. The region is an industry leader, with a highly developed aluminium industry and aluminium processing technology.
In addition to the prototype, which is the main objective of the project, proposals for the dissemination of STAF panels in the program region are of great importance.
