The TwinVECTOR initiative aims to bring together leading European expertise in the field of advanced batteries. Funded by the European Union with a grant of €1.3 million over the course of three years, the project has the goal of developing cutting-edge battery technology.

One key aspect of the TwinVECTOR project is the expansion of the center of excellence at Tomas Bata University in Zlín, Czech Republic. This expansion will provide a space for multidisciplinary teams from across the country and around the world to work together, network, and collaborate on the continued development of energy storage technologies. The Bavarian Research Alliance has announced the expansion, noting its potential to create synergies and drive further progress in the field.

The TwinVECTOR project, coordinated by Tomas Bata University, brings together four partners from Germany (KIT, BayFOR), Finland (VTT), and Austria (AIT) to create a knowledge pool for new battery energy storage technologies. The participants aim to develop sustainable batteries with increasing energy density and decreasing costs, in full compliance with social and environmental standards.

Each partner contributes their unique expertise, with the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland supporting materials development, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology contributing life cycle analysis, and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology contributing expertise in energy storage systems.

Funded under the EU’s Twinning funding scheme, the project aims to bring together different research institutes and teams from science and industry to exchange best practices and create new research ideas that will ultimately result in new products on the market.
