Pooling European Competence in the Development of World-Class Next-Generation Batteries

Zlín, Czech Republic – Tomas Bata University in Zlín (UTB) is the coordinator of the EU project TwinVECTOR, which involves five partners from the Czech Republic, Germany, Finland and Austria.

Sustainable and responsible production of batteries with high performance and long lifetime is part of the European energy strategy and UTB has the ambition to contribute to this strategy,” emphasises Professor Petr Saha, Director of the University Institute of UTB. Linking multidisciplinary national and international teams will enable teams to network, create synergies and work together on the further development of battery energy storage technologies.

“By intensively exchanging ideas, research results and services as well as through institutional cooperation, we are not only able to increase the visibility of the TBU in the European research area, but also support the EU in making European battery technology competitive and achieving its goals within the framework of the Green Deal,” says the coordinator of the TwinVECTOR project Dr Viera Pechancova at the Tomas Bata University. The EU is supporting the recently launched project with EUR 1.3 million over a period of three years.
