In April 2013 American Graphite Technologies (AGT) it is planning to collaborate with Ukraine's Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology ("KIPT") on graphene-based working materials for 3D printing. Now AGT announced that it has finalized the IP agreement and funded the first year of research.
The KIPT science team will consist of 10 scientists (5 PhD's, 4 former weapons scientists and 1 PhD student). AGT paid $50,000 for the project, which will run for one year with an option to renew. AGT will own all the IP developed from this Graphene 3D Printing project.
