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.

BATTERY2030+: Roadmap for battery research in Europe

In order to develop future batteries, partners from science and industry from all over Europe have launched the BATTERY 2030+ research initiative. A roadmap specifies the milestones: a platform for material development using artificial intelligence (AI), networked sensors and self-healing technology for batteries as well as sustainable manufacturing and recycling processes. Via the research platform CELEST, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the University of Ulm and the Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) are involved in the consortium.
