Researcher Awarded € 2.5 Million to Develop 3D Printed Batteries

Dublin-based researcher Professor Valeria Nicolosi has been awarded € 2.5 million by the ERC to further advance her developed 3D printing process in order to produce a range of energy storage devices with enhanced performance.

Professor Nicolosi and her team at the AMBER materials science research centre at Trinity College Dublin will develop fully customisable batteries that can be adapted to specific applications and needs. The 2D nano materials and 3D printing processes developed by her will be used to create complex material shapes, that may offer further performance enhancement at lower cost. This new type of long-lasting battery could come in any size or shape and camouflaged within any type of material, including clothing, car dashboards, mobile phones or even implanted as a cardiac device inside your body.

Professor Michael Morris, Director of the AMBER said: “The work Professor Nicolosi and her team are doing is at the forefront of their fields, and this grant will help them take the next step in combining the team’s expertise of advanced materials methods to integrate nanomaterials into 3D-printed energy storage devices.”
