Prof. Dirk Uwe Sauer is coordinator of the competence cluster "Battery Utilisation Concepts”
With the umbrella concept "Battery Research Factory", the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is pursuing a topic-oriented, coherent, national approach to the promotion and further
development of battery research in Germany. Within this framework four new competence clusters have been established.
The cluster "Battery Usage Concepts" (coordinator team Prof. Dr. Dirk Uwe Sauer, Prof. Dr. Andreas Jossen, Dr. Axel Müller-Groeling) is to develop know-how for module or cell diagnosis including an end-of-life rapid characterisation or condition determination.
