Tag along as this year's Grundfos Prize Winner and her associates and students create and test new materials to make oure rechargeable batteries more effective - and more sustainable.

As COVID-19 put a stop to the annual Grundfos Prize ceremony, this year’s prize winner was robbed of the opportunity to share her research with us in a Grundfos Prize Lecture. Instead, we invited ourselves into the lab at University of Southern Denmark, where her exciting research takes place. We’re therefore happy to be able to share the resulting film with you:

Research grant provides freedom

Dorthe Bomholdt Ravnsbæk is both happy and proud of the recognition expressed by the prize. And the EUR 100,000 research grant provides a welcome opportunity to acquire a new instrument to investigate the disorder of the atomic structure inside a battery.

“Part of the grant will allow me to upgrade the instrument with extra functionality, which is super important for our research. The rest of the grant I’ll keep to finance unforeseen directions in our research which normal research grants would not allow me to pursue,” she concludes.
