MÜNSTER (dpa-AFX) – In Münster, the first system of the German battery research center, which is funded with a total of 680 million euros, has started regular operation. At a press conference on Friday, Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek (CDU) called the center a “lighthouse project” that could ensure “technological sovereignty in an essential technology field”.

In many places around the world, intensive work is being carried out on high-performance batteries, for example for electromobility, cell phones, tablets and pacemakers. It is about know-how and the rapid further development of prototypes so that German and European industry can keep up with the competition and not have to lag behind.

The minister only commented indirectly on the dispute over the award of the research center to Münster. “If we want to continue to compete in the world, it’s not a question of who does it, but how quickly we can develop all of these technologies,” she said. In 2020 there were protests from Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg against the award to Münster. The federal states saw their own locations at a disadvantage.
