DST-IISER Thiruvananthapuram integrated clean energy material acceleration platform on storage, set up by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), has been officially launched at the Mission Innovation annual gathering session held at New Delhi on 4th April 2022. Dr. M. M. Shaijumon, Associate Professor, School of Physics, and the Centre head, received the citation from the Hon’ble Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Jitendra Singh. The consortium at IISER Thiruvananthapuram, consisting of a core team of researchers from 15 partnering institutes, aims to accelerate the development of Solid-State Battery technology using Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence through automated processes. IISER TVM wholeheartedly welcomes the new centre to the campus. We are certain that the new addition will pave way for innovations in solid-state battery research.
Among the other material acceleration platforms set up by the DST, centre at IIT Hyderabad focuses on Bioenergy and hydrogen, while the centre at IIT Kanpur is dedicated on Materials. According to DST, these platforms constitute a knowledge network of more than 38 R&D institutions and about 80 research personnel working on next-generation low-cost advanced energy materials.
