Battery 2030+April 2020: Roadmap for Battery Research in Europe

To develop tomorrow’s batteries, partners from science and industry all over Europe have launched the research initiatve BATTERY 2030+. Now, a roadmap defines the milestones in more detail: A joint platform for the development of materials with the help of artificial intelliegence (AI), networked sensors and self-healing technology for batteries, and sustainable production and recycling processes. Via the CELEST platform, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Ulm University, and the Baden-Württemberg Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research (ZSW) participate in the consortium.

AgiloBatFebruary 2020: AgiloBat: Flexible Production of Battery Cells

So far, rigid production processes and product lines have characterized battery production for various applications, from e-mobility to the power tool. The AgiloBat research project will facilitate a flexible battery production in terms of format, material, and number of pieces. Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) cooperate with partners to develop an agile production system. The project is funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research, and the Arts (MWK) with up to EUR 4.5 million. For the next project stage, funding with up to EUR 14 million is envisaged by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
