In solidarity with Ukraine / Солідарні з Україною – the official statement of WUT

The academic community of the Warsaw University of Technology stands in full solidarity with the Ukrainian nation at this harrowing moment for our neighbor. Nothing can justify the military aggression that Russia has carried out against Ukraine. In Europe so terribly affected by the drama of World War II, resulting in millions of victims, the behavior of the Russian authorities raises legitimate concerns about the future of the entire continent.

GIENAHS Project outcomes - message to all SME CEOs: raise your own R&D Manager

Erasmus+ Programme GIENAHS project ("Grasping Innovation in Europe through a closer iNterAction between HEIs and SMEs") conducted at Warsaw University of Technology in cooperation with 5 other European Universities and 4 small and medium enterprises (SMEs), led by Uni.versus CSEI (Bari, Italy) has reached another milestone. Researchers of Warsaw University of Technology in cooperation with Exquisite SRL (Romanian company) led wide-range survey among SMEs in 6 European countries (Greece, Italy, Poland, Romania, Sweden, United Kingdom). The main aim was to determine the innovation introduction processes at SMEs and what are the needs for making it faster and easier. The responses were analyzed and the results were used to form the list of skills/knowledge required by SMEs when hiring R&D manager that would organize work and funding for their future innovations. Such list would be the key list to form European PhD curriculum that would train such future R&D managers specifically for the SMEs sector. Click "more" to see the detailed findings.

ASTRABAT: developing a new battery to boost Europe’s electric mobility

A new European project has been launched to design an innovative high-energy and safe, solid-state lithium-ion battery cell for the electric vehicle market and beyond. The EU-funded project, named ASTRABAT, aims to develop optimal lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery solutions for the increasing demands of the electric vehicle market in particular. The goal is to fulfil Europe’s need for a safe, high-energy, sustainable and marketable battery for green mobility that could be manufactured in Europe on a massive scale. As society turns to electric vehicles, this challenge has now become acute, with Asian competitors well ahead in the game.

Led by France's CEA, the 4-year project will focus on developing a better, safe and environmental-friendly cell architecture. This will come with an all solid-state electrolyte design suited to the new high-energy electrode materials and compatible with current mass-production processes.

Leszek Niedzicki, PhD, DSc, Eng. of PIRG group, Faculty of Chemistry leads the WUT team participating in the project. Main role of WUT group is synthesis of the key electrolyte ingredients - proprietary lithium salts and plasticizers.
