The Centre, which will open in 2020, will see the development of the next generation battery systems for use in all sectors, including aerospace & defence.
Recruitment for the first wave of technical positions is already underway. Jeff Pratt, Managing Director of UKBIC, said: “This a great opportunity to be involved and play a significant role, from the start of our journey, working with industry to develop our future battery technology”.
“We are keen to attract a diverse range of talent and believe that the technology and processes in UKBIC are similar to other manufacturing and process industries. Therefore, we are keen to talk, not only to battery experts, but to experts who have experience in related process and production technologies across other sectors, who would like to transfer their skills into battery process technology.”
