POLYSTORAGE - EUROPEAN TRAINING NETWORK IN INNOVATIVE POLYMERS FOR NEXT-GENERATION ELECTROCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE
Project identification number:
POLYSTORAGE ETN aims to develop high quality training opportunities for 15 \1 ESRs (one financed with Australian funds) in the area of Polymers for Next Generation Electrochemical Energy Storage. The final objective is to train materials scientists who will be the future leaders to face some of the upcoming European energy and environmental challenges. Well-balanced combination of fundamental and basic material&polymer science with applied research in advanced energy storage devices is a key aspect of this training network. A comprehensive training programme has been designed at two levels including local activities such as enrolment in PhD programmes, local courses, etc, and network-wide activities such as sectorial secondments, 6 workshops, 2 schools and one final conference. The goal is to exploit the high number of potential synergies between innovative polymers and next generation energy storage technologies such as postlithium batteries, redox flow batteries, and all-polymer batteries. POLYSTORAGE gathers together 12 beneficiaries (incl. 2 industries) and 11 partners (incl. 9 industries). POLYSTORAGE academic partners are internationally renowned for their research and training activities in polymer science (Univ. of Jena, Univ. of the Basque Country, Univ. of Leuven, Univ. of Pau, Aalto Univ.) and energy storage (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Uppsala Univ., Politecnico di Torino, Imdea Energy, Nat. Inst. of Chem. and Deakin Univ.). The 11 European industries with complementary expertise are FAAM Research Center, E22 Energy Storage Solutions, Scania, Toyota Motor Europe, Evonic Creavis GmbH, TCI Europe NV, CALIXHE, Solvionic, Chemspeed, NETZSCH and Repsol. The industrial participants will have an active participation in the training activities and exploitation of the project results.
