POR CreO 2014-2020: COLOURS project


Duration: October 2020 – December 2022

Call: R&S 2020 – POR FESR Regione Toscana 2014-20 – Call 2


Budget: 546,627.10 €

Resolvo is in charge of financial management activities of COLOURS – “Luminescent solar concentrators for smart street furniture”, an R&D project, co-financed by Tuscany Region under the programme POR CReO FESR 2014-2020 – Bando RS 2020.

COLOURS aims to develop new smart LSC panels with characteristics suitable for use in urban areas, through the collaboration of a partnership composed of companies – SCORPIO SRL (lead partner), CICCI RESEARCH S.R.L., I&S – S.R.L., and research organisations – ICCOM-CNR Institute of Chemistry of OrganoMetallic Compounds and the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of the University of Pisa.

Objective of the project

The partnership aims to design and develop a series of new fluorescent dyes for the preparation of luminescent solar concentrators, to develop the best procedures for their dispersion in the polymeric material through a careful choice of solvent and polymerisation method, to develop an automated procedure for quality control of the manufactured product during the production process through spectrophotometric methods, and to study the appropriate size of the panels to obtain the best performance according to the field of use. Lastly, it will be responsible for assembling the LSC modules to use the technology on a prototype structure (bus shelter) which, with the appropriate electrical and electronic equipment, will be able to self-power equipment and sensors (e.g. lighting systems, motion sensors to switch on only when needed) thanks to solar radiation.


The role of Resolvo

The role of Resolvo is to coordinate the financial activities of the project in order to guarantee a correct and effective reporting of expenditure within the time limits set by the announcement.

Within the project Resolvo coordinates financial activities in order to guarantee a smooth and efficient reporting of project expenditures within the deadlines foreseen. Resolvo supports projects partners SCORPIO, CICCI RESEARCH and I&S in the preparation of a detailed financial report through: reporting documents preparation, checking of expenditures and documents, upload and submission on the regional online reporting system, evaluation of possible project changes and support in the preparation of official documents needed.
