About BASE

The goal of Batteries Sweden (BASE) can be described as follows​:

  • Build an internationally leading Swedish scientific/technological/innovation Centre of Excellence for a wide range of batteries concepts
  • Develop an ultrahigh performance battery by taking novel battery materials, components and concepts based on lithium, sodium, metal-air/sulphur, biomaterials, and iron/manganese through the whole value-chain from research scale to at least pilot-scale production where this is appropriate
  • Ensure environmentally friendly production of materials, electrodes and battery cells through the use of LCA and recycling-by-demand
  • Support end-users in Sweden with battery test procedures and cutting-edge scientific evaluations of their test results
  • Provide society with necessary information and competence regarding emerging electrochemical energy storage solutions
  • Create an inspiring research atmosphere enabling young scientists, PhDs and Master students to work in close collaboration with the leading industries in the field
  • Develop new courses or course modules at all levels for life- long learning and on request for the involved companies
  • Introduce an international dimension into our work through collaboration with International Centres
  • Attract World-leading young scientist to work in the Centre through, for example, Marie Curie Fellowships.
