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.
In Silicon Valley Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, is setting up the world’s largest battery factory – based on the lithium-ion technology. Ist hat still state-of-the-art? Or is Elon Musk already old-fashioned? These and other questions over 60 participants dealt with at the 7th MEET Akademie.
Carola Schultz, Ph.D. student at the MEET battery research center of the University of Münster was one of the two successful candidates, that Shimadzu, one of the world’s largest provider of analytical instrumentation, chose for their prestigious lab4you student program. This offered her the great opportunity to gain insight into the working world and above all to perform her research in the comprehensive Laboratory World of Shimadzu Europe in Duisburg. more
The VDE Institute in Offenbach (Hessen) and the MEET battery research center at Münster University will cooperate in the field of battery research. Representatives of both institutions signed a "Memorandum of Understanding”.
In hall 2, at the joint booth of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), the MEET Battery Research Center of Muenster University was one of the major exhibitors. Just as fair visitors from academia and industry also the Ministry of Science of NRW Svenja Schulze and the Ministry of Economics of NRW Garrelt Duin seized the opportunity to gain insight into the research and development activities of MEET. more
