ACE-FUELS has incorporated a Consultancy Unit, ACE-FUELS Enterprise. Through this avenue, the Centre responds to tenders for contracts and consultancy services. The ACEFUELS Consultancy services unit has the primary goal of translating our multidisciplinary research expertise and output into tangible commercial impacts for our business partners in government and private sectors. The unit identifies and cultivates close relationships with clients that make commercial use of output from the Centre and thereby sustain the relevance of the Centre. This initiative promotes monetization of the expertise of ACE-FUELS faculty and staff.
In many cases, ACE-FUELS research output has been transformed into commercial products and services that simultaneously solve serious problems for the region and beyond while also creating economic value. ACE-FUELS project demonstrates the ability to create local-based jobs and businesses. The proposed enterprise-funding model promotes collaborations with industry partners and other valued institutions. ACE-FUELS programs foster economic growth by providing advanced technologies, supporting local firms and enhancing the attractiveness of the region to outside investors. The resulting products/services commercialization will bring income to the Centre.
