The rate of battery improvement has slowed down to 3-5% per year.1,
Why do batteries improve more slowly than other technologies?
Batteries consist of several components that are manufactured by different organisations.
With increasing energy density, these components exhibit rising interdependencies, which means that only very few
high energy material combinations will lead to stable battery cycling.
To come up with inventive breakthroughs, battery researchers need to achieve high situational awareness
to identify suitable combinations of high energy battery components that lead to strong performance.
Cool solution - identify highly relevant patents in various languages
>70,000 battery-related patent documents are published every year, of which >60% do not initially appear in English.
Our curated machine learning models allow for relevancy projections of patent search results against various categories,
leading to an improved understanding of the international IP landscape around your R&D projects.
Cool solution - facilitated collaboration between researchers
b-science.net allows for identification of battery technology components and services that are made available according to specified
technology transfer terms.
Systematic screening of battery
material combinations will be facilitated by increased visibility of potential partners.
A peer-review process will allow for identification of high quality suppliers.
The first 50 organisations who enter a free collaboration request during this initial phase
will be acknowledged with a
box of Swiss chocolate pralinés and 5 contact information exchange credits for future use.
