MEET - Where science meets industry

Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology (MEET) is the battery research center at Münster University. It comprises an international team of around 150 scientists who are working on the research and development of innovative electrochemical energy storage devices with high energy density, longer durability and maximum safety. The aim is to improve batteries for use in electric cars and stationary energy storage systems – at the lowest possible cost. MEET thus strives to further enhance the competitiveness of its partners in battery research – in particular on lithium-ion technology – both regionally and nationally.


Futurist meets battery researcher: A talk in front of running cameras


How will we live and work in 5 to 10 years? Since 25 years the trend researcher Lars Thomsen investigates topics that shape the society of the future. One of these topics is electro-mobility as an emerging technology. As a knowledgeable battery researcher Prof. Martin Winter has his own projections on the future development of electro-mobility. In front of this background, the 6w-Film- und Fernsehproduktion initiated a talk between the two researchers at MEET Battery Research Center as a contribution to the TV show Planet E of the broadcasting channel zdf. more

9. MEET-Akademie beleuchtete Elektrolyte in der Batterieforschung


Das Gelingen der Energiewende hängt unter anderem davon ab, wie sich Energie aus erneuer-baren Quellen speichern lässt. Die Nachfrage nach Akkus steigt und befeuert die Forschung, noch leistungsstärkere Batterien hervorzubringen. Besonders vielversprechend ist die Weiter-entwicklung von Elektrolyten – einer zentralen Komponente von Batterien. Die Rolle der Elektro-lyten und der Stand der Materialforschung standen auch im Mittelpunkt der neunten „MEET-Akademie“ am 29. Juni 2017. mehr

For the 17th time the Leonardo-Campus-Run (LCR) took place last Wednesday and got more than 3600 people to participate. The staff members of MEET Battery Research Center and the Helmholtz Institute Münster teamed up to face the challenge together. more

Lithium ion battery: in the focus of research – in the interest of industry

The Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (aabc) revolves around the big trends in the field of electric vehicles and battery research. Last January the aabc took place in Mainz, Germany. Participants from the automotive, supplier, process and chemistry sector as well as from academic research discussed innovations, barriers and potentials.
Batteries based on lithium metal and lithium ion systems are still considered as key components for advancing electro-mobility. Thus, the aabc devoted a whole symposium to this subject, which was chaired by the expert on battery research, Prof. Dr. Martin Winter. more
