JBT works with partners under a consortium agreement or a custom contract.

While a consortium agreement allows for cost and risk sharing, some battery needs are so specialized or the end result so exclusive that a custom contract is appropriate.  There are benefits to both arrangements:

  • Opportunities for license arrangements
    • Non-exclusive
    • Limited industry-specific exclusive
    • Limited industry-wide exclusive
  • First-to-market advantage
  • Specialized designs
  • Opportunity to purchase rights to select IP
  • Prototype batteries available for your use

For a custom contract for more specialized designs or packaging, exclusive access, and IP transfer, contact us.

Benefits of a JBT Consortium:

  • Industry-advantaged access to leading solid-state battery technology
  • Shared R&D cost model
  • Shared risk model
  • Prototype batteries available for your use

Custom fees are agreed upon a negotiated basis for highly specialized designs, specialized packaging, exclusive access, and IP transfer.

JBT works on a best-efforts basis, and JBT or its affiliates retain ownership rights to battery technology developed (except when a written intellectual property transfer agreement exists).
