Researchers dr. Damijan Zorko, dr. Borut Černe and doc. dr. Zoran Bergant have successfully applied for the University of Ljubljana Innovation Fund call with the project "Development of lightweight and advanced components of powertrains".

The innovation is based on lightweight, high-performance composite materials as the base material for gears and represents a breakthrough solution that opens up the possibility of replacing metal gears with lightweight composite versions under unprecedented operating conditions. The funds received will increase the technological maturity of the developed and patented technology and bring it closer to the market. Several important Slovenian companies, including Domel, Pipistrel, BSH, Polycom, and Albatross Fly, supported the project.

The UL Innovation Fund enables teams at the University of Ljubljana that develop innovative solutions to reach a higher level of technological maturity and thus the market.

Congratulations to all the recipients of the 2021 Innovation Fund!
