Scientific Partners

Fraunhofer ISE is the main scientific partner for testing and applying new functionalities. ISE hosts the Marie-Curie fellowship of Andreas for the development of Quokka3.

The predecessor of Quokka3 was developed during Andreas' employment at The Australian National University. A strong scientific partnership is maintained, including priority software access.

PV Lighthouse hosts the free predecessor of Quokka3, and from its very early days continued to scientifically collaborate on the improvement of relevant models.
