The Doctorate Programme on Emerging battery Storage Technologies Inspiring Young scientists (DESTINY) PhD program is set to reinforce European research in energy storage in line with the objectives of Battery 2030+, a group of projects designed to improve research in accelerated discovery of battery interfaces and materials, integration of smart functionalities, and other cross-cutting areas like manufacturability and recyclability. It is a 5-year EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND project which will have 2 cohorts of students that will be hired in September of 2021 and 2022, covering 29 different topics.
The DESTINY program is co-founded by the European Commission, through the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND PhD Programme (Grant Agreement #945357). ICMAB is one of the partners of the project, together with 40 other international partners, including 20 Universities, 13 Research centers, Research Networks, Regions, 7 Companies, Large Scale Facilities & National Agencies.ICMAB, as project partner, is offering 2 of the 29 possible topics for PhD’s:
- Topic n°5 : Electrochemical and structural study of blended positive electrode materials for high power Li-ion batteries
- Topic n°20 : Ca and Mg batteries: improvement of performances by interface engineering
