The aim of the competence cluster for battery cell production (ProZell) is to research and improve the production process of battery cells, assess its influence on cell properties and product development costs and further develop it for new battery generations. The aim is to ground the scientific basis for the establishment and sustainable further development of an internationally leading, competitive battery cell production in Germany.
In the current 17 projects of the ProZell cluster, scientists from 19 German universities and research institutions are working together conducting research into battery cell production. Through constant communication between the projects and with the cluster’s management circle consisting of industry and science, a close network of science and industry is created in close coordination with the BMBF and KLiB. Together, they lay the foundation for a powerful and cost-effective battery cell “Made in Germany”.
