Research Training Group SIMET
The research training group SiMET aims at the qualification of doctoral researchers pursuing an interdisciplinary approach in their theses
in order to substantially advance modelling and numerical simulation techniques for Lithium-ion-batteries.
Special challenges for modelling and simulation arise from both the multi-scalarity of the battery cells (particle, electrode pair and full cell)
as well as the multi-disciplinarity of the fundamental (electrical/electrochemical, thermal, and mechanical) processes.

Post-Lithium Excellence Cluster granted
The proposal for a cluster of excellence on “Energy Storage Beyond Lithium” by UUlm and KIT,
with participation from ZSW and JLU Giessen won in the final round of the German Excellence Strategy.
A fantastic success for the recently founded research platform CELEST coordinating the electrochemical energy storage activities at Ulm & Karlsruhe.
