The client, a global electronics manufacturer, conducts battery-related development. To design and develop a battery system that can provide further improved performance, it intends to construct a deterioration model for composite materials used in battery electrode.
While the client has already identified organizations constructing a deterioration model for battery electrode itself, it believes that some deterioration models from industries other than that of batteries can be applied to battery electrode. Hence, the client has issued this open request. Proposals from organizations specialized in handling of glass materials particularly are anticipated.
Proposal shall have clear points and should not include confidential information. Supplemental files may be submitted in addition to the proposal.
The client will evaluate all responses with the following criteria.
- Overall scientific and technical merit
- Approach to proof of concept or performance
- Economic potential of concept
- Realism of the proposed plan (action items, timeline, roles, deliverables, cost estimation)
- Potential for proprietary position
- Respondents’ capability and related experiences
Anticipated Project Process
After reviewing submitted proposals, the client possibly ask clarifying questions before selecting the most suitable candidates for collaboration. The client will select best candidates through evaluations. During the selection process, the client may execute NDA with selected respondents, seek further information disclosure, and discuss specific development targets or potential opportunities.
The client will execute necessary agreements with the selected respondents and move to the advanced development phase. Specifics of any collaboration will be determined through consultation with the concerned parties.
