Volkswagen & BASF Announce “The Science Award for Electrochemistry”

It’s not often companies turn to the collective efforts of the public in order to help advance key technologies needed for the cars of the future. But that is exactly what Volkswagen and chemical company BASF are doing with the introduction of “Science Award for Electrochemistry”.

One of the main concerns of current battery technology, along with alternatively powered vehicles in general, stems from reliability. Because electric vehicles EVs typically cost more than their gasoline counterparts, the need for continued innovation and refinement for existing battery technology is of utmost important to automakers like VW.  Energy storage devices currently do not have the service capacity needed to keep customers satisfied in terms of energy supply and mobility.

(For those interested in the award, you must be working as an individual; be less than 40 years old; and the application needs an excellent thesis or research contribution in chemistry, physics or engineering; a recommendation by a supervising professor or equivalent; and employees, of course, are not entitled to apply.)

The application period ends on August 3.   The future is near for Volkswagen customers.
