LG Energy Solutions Battery Innovation Contest is a project for research collaboration designed by LG Energy Solution that will be initiated novel proposals from universities and research instructions from all over the world. The contest theme includes Energy, Sustainability, safety, Advanced Materials, as well as Other areas that need innovation solutions. The specific keyword for each contest theme is summarized in ‘Contest theme’ page. The winner of this contest will be granted a budget per year for multi-year research activities and may also have the opportunity to collaborate by dispatching our R&D teams. We highly encourage scholars, who have novel ideas to share with us, to apply for BIC 2021.
Projects will start after signing contract. LG Energy solution will fund each project with maximum of 150,000 USD per year. The duration of the project can be extended after reviewing the outcomes of the projects. Each project leader has an obligation to provide progress reports at regular intervals during the contract period.
