Jens Maaløe, Chairman of the Board of the Grundfos Foundation and Chairman of the Grundfos Prize Committee, presented the Grundfos Prize 2020 to Associate Professor Dorthe Bomholdt Ravnsbæk at an informal event in Bjerringbro on Thursday 12 November.

Associate Professor Dorthe Bomholdt Ravnsbæk received the Grundfos Prize 2020 in recognition of her research in nanomaterials, especially lithium batteries. Lithium batteries are found everywhere from mobile phones to electric cars, and they are a crucial component in the green transition.

"Dorthe Bomholdt Ravnsbæk's research uses highly advanced experimental analysis methods without ever losing sight of the overall goal of improved energy storage. Her broad network of contacts also ensures rapid dissemination, also industrially, of the results achieved, and her research is therefore a distinguished example of use-inspired basic research"
Jens Maaløe, Chairman, Grundfos Foundation
