Every researcher uses standards in their every day work. They apply standard protocols developed and fine-tuned in their laboratories and preserve knowledge in the form of good laboratory practice (GLP) guides, safety regulations, standard routines, research protocols, electronic laboratory notebooks etc. Such standards reduce errors, improve repeatability, and increase the overall quality of data generated during research – both in experiment and simulation.

However, within BATTERY2030+, we want to take the next step: In order to enable researchers to collaborate efficiently, we work on harmonized procedures and protocols for mutual acceptance of data (MAD), data re-use and full data sharing. We have selected several focus areas, in which we concentrate our activities. These areas include:

  • Electrochemical Testing
  • Synthesis and Characterization Protocols
  • Confirmation of Theoretical Data with Experimental Results (and vice versa)
  • Simulation infrastructure and interfaces

Benefits of setting consortium-wide standards:

  • Collaboration on new levels, allowing for novel, autonomous research approaches, accelerated materials discovery, and data-based research in a field that has thus far mostly adhered to classical trial and error research
  • Highest quality of research within BATTERY 2030+
  • Enabling FAIR data principles
