DEKRA’s new testing center for automotive battery systems

The international expert organization DEKRA is setting up a new testing center for automotive and stationary batteries. The facility will be located at the company’s Technology Center at DEKRA Lausitzring in Brandenburg, Germany. It is an important building block in DEKRA’s strategy of offering comprehensive testing and expert services for all aspects of electromobility from a single source. The new laboratory, for which the company is investing in the double-digit million euro range, is scheduled to be fully operational by late 2024. “The demand for testing services in relation to development, validation and certification of high-capacity battery modules and packs has sharply...


Policy Brief: Research and Innovation in Transport and Mobility

Transport and mobility are one of the core areas that can help achieve the goals set by the European Green Deal and the European Union’s digital strategy. While the green transition in transport is driven by the need to drastically reduce emissions and increase energy independence, the digital transition is instead an ongoing process driven by the advent of new or disruptive technologies. When integrated and implemented holistically, digital technologies can support green solutions and bring substantial benefits. Combined research and innovation activities are essential to move this interlinked transition forward. This policy brief aims to overview recent EU-funded research actions in...
