TWINNING FOR DEVELOPMENT OF WORLD-CLASS NEXT GENERATION BATTERIES

Objective

The TwinVECTOR project aims to create a centre of excellence at the Tomas Bata University in Zlín TBU, focusing on next generation battery sustainable design, energy business models, and sustainability assessments, with the support of upgraded research and administration unit (RAU). The RAU therefore coordinates the capacity building measures of the partners´ activities to emphasise the synergy and the creation of the centre of excellence at TBU. Hence, TBU will team up with excellent foreign institutions: VTT, AIT, KIT, and BAYFOR. The whole spectrum of activities is planned to activate knowledge at TBU, set-up knowledge pool and capacity building activities enabling flexible, multidisciplinary project teams to address the topic of the next generation of batteries with the help of life cycle thinking via sustainability assessments.
Additionally, advanced battery technologies also need to be assessed via a combination of techno-economic simulation tools, cost-benefit analysis, and business model innovation. The widening country of Czechia, specifically the Zlín region, aims to increase scientific expertise and capacity in these areas and methods. The consortium members will share the expertise so that TBU can boost the research capacity to undertake world-class R&D activities in the energy storage field and bring them to the market. The ability to produce original ideas will be reflected in multiple outcomes expected in the short-term horizon: EU projects submitted in cooperation with excellent partners, scientific papers, conferences, and business agreements. High-impact research is expected long-term with technology transfer into practice. The existing research capacity of all members will be strengthened via additional capacity-building activities in partnership with BAYFOR.
