Upcoming webinar series on battery manufacturing

DEFACTO is one of the projects that will be presented during a free of charge webinar series devoted to battery scientists and engineers as well as to students interested in the energy field. The "Battery Manufacturing Webinar Series"  has been arranged by the ARTISTIC Project, granted by the European Research Council, and will take place between June 29 and July 3. The aim is to develop a forum of discussion about the links between battery manufacturing process and electrode properties, encompassing both...

DEFACTO presented at the Battery2030+ Conference European perspectives on batteries of the future.

Our Project coordinator CIDETEC presented the DEFACTO Project during the Battery2030+ web conference about European perspectives on batteries of the future, which was celebrated on May 25 and 26. The conference was originally planned to be held presential, but it had to be reorganised in an online format due to COVID-19 mobility restrictions. Despite this, the two-days event was a great success and it counted with up to 750 online participants. Scientists, industry representatives, politicians, and journalists from all over the world followed the programme, a display...

DEFACTO – Battery DEsign and manuFACTuring Optimization through multiphysic modelling

The DEFACTO project kicked off last month in San Sebastián, Spain. The name of this initiative is the acronym for Battery DEsign and manuFACTuring Optimization through multiphysic modelling. In this sense, the project’s rationale is to develop a multiphysic and multiscale modelling integrated tool to better understand the material, cell and manufacturing process behaviour, therefore allowing to accelerate cell development and the R&I process. This approach will allow developing new high capacity and high voltage Li-ion cell generation 3b...

The DEFACTO project, expected to revolutionize the European cell manufacturing industry, kicks off.

The European project DEFACTO, coordinated by the Basque research center CIDETEC Energy Storage, started in San Sebastián, Spain, on January 14th. The kickoff meeting gathered all the partners in a two-day reunion that included a visit to the facilities of CIDETEC. DEFACTO is a project funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Programme that seeks to revolutionize the way in which the cell manufacturing industry for electric vehicles has worked so far. As of today, companies incur in high laboratory...
