Hyundai Motor and Seoul National University (SNU) have opened a joint battery research centre to drive battery innovation and promote cooperation between industry and academia.

The automaker has committed investment of KRW30bn by 2030 to support the centre, including set up and equipment.

The centre, within SNU’s Institute of Chemical Processes, is devoted to battery research and will have seven laboratories plus conference rooms, facilitating development of battery technology, analysis, measurement, and processes.

Twenty-two research projects will focus on lithium metal and solid state batteries, battery management and process.

Fourteen projects concentrate on lithium metal and solid state batteries.

Lithium metal research concentrates on enhancing lithium-electrolyte material durability and conducting shape analysis to minimise deterioration.
