Research at MEET
Embedded in the scientific network of the University of Münster (WWU), various scientific and engineering disciplines cooperate under the umbrella of the MEET Battery Research Center. The aim is to develop a holistic research approach through close interdisciplinary exchange and thus promote innovative ideas and synergies.
MEET benefits from WWU's many years of experience in materials science and material analysis, including Prof. Dr. Martin Winter's professorship "Materials Science, Energy and Electrochemistry" at the Institute of Physical Chemistry. The research network is supplemented by cooperation with external partners from science and industry.
MEET pursues a holistic, systemic research and development on electrochemical energy storage systems and transducers, which, in addition to synthesis and production, characterization and analysis of materials, components and cells, naturally also covers the various aspects of application, including economic efficiency, environmental impact and social impact. There is currently a focus on research into lithium ion batteries; in addition, future battery generations and alternative electrochemical storage devices and converters are under intensive development.
Multiple awards for a strong, interdisciplinary team
The researchers at the MEET Battery Research Centre share the results of their work at numerous conferences and symposia, both at home and abroad. The multiple papers produced by the research groups have already received several awards. At the same time, the interdisciplinary and international nature of their work offers an attractive field for junior researchers. The research work carried out is marked by strong collaborations – for example, with Helmholtz Institute Münster, the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy at the University of Münster, the Research Fab for Battery Cells, or numerous national and international battery research institutions.
