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.
