In January, Ilika announced they were leading a 24-month £8.2M Faraday Battery Challenge collaboration programme to integrate high silicon content electrodes into their Goliath solid state batteries to enable automotive level performance. The kick-off meeting for project HISTORY took place on February 27th at Ilika’s headquarters in Southampton, UK. Along with Ilika, also in attendance were team members from Nexeon, HSSMI, CPI, University College London, University of St Andrews and Imperial College London, as well as our monitoring service provider, MSP (previously known as “monitoring officers”) and members of Innovate UK.
The meeting was in part an opportunity for all partners to physically meet in the same place and start this 24-month collaborative project with a common understanding.
