Energy storage devices are key components in current energy systems but will be even more important in the near future, in particular for electric mobility and renewable energy storage. Both stand for a climate-friendly energy future and rely to a great extent on the availability of durable, inexpensive, and safe electricity storage systems. Current challenges for battery research, development, and manufacturing include higher energy density, safety issues, as well as cost reduction and durability of state of the art battery systems resulting in an improved driving range for mobility and more cost-effective storage systems for energy application.
If you are a chemist, material scientist, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer or the like, grab the chance to educate yourself in this promising area where experts are needed and wanted.
The summer school provides a compact overview of major aspects of lithium-ion battery research and manufacturing. The program is tailored for advanced students (Master, PhD) and trained professionals, and covers the following topics:
- Battery related electrochemistry and material science
- Characterization of materials and components up to complete systems
- Modelling of components, cells, and systems
- Aging, failure, safety, and life cycle aspects
- Design and manufacturing
