The ProZell research cluster investigates important features along the battery cell production process in 16 research projects and one accompanying project. Numerous process steps are adressed regarding electrode and cell production as well as formation and general topics. The projects are closely networked and the results are stored and exchanged in a database.
The individual research groups are closely networked not only within the projects but also through overarching projects (E-Qual, Sim4Pro, eKoZell). Joint workshops and research colloquia ensure a further intensification of the cooperation. The results of the projects and the research work are discussed together with the management group, which also includes representatives of German cell manufacturers. Through this targeted networking, competencies are bundled and novel research results are generated.
