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...
