Battery power of the future

Battery power of the future

More than 300 young researchers and developers are currently doing their doctorates at the Volkswagen Group. Part three of our PhD series takes you into the yet uncharted world of battery chemistry.

Battery power of the future

Under the banner "Researching Towards Tomorrow", around 700 visitors came to Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Group's 13th PhD day. This year, the focus was on electric mobility, digitization, lightweight construction and environmental and resource efficiency.

And three of the PhD students themselves. In a film series, we present Patrick Arnold, Robert Wendland and Anja Bielefeld from the Drive Technology research department. At the top of this page, in part three of our series Anja Bielefeld takes you to the Technology Centre for Electric Traction in Isenbüttel near Wolfsburg. There, together with her colleagues, she is researching the inner workings of solid-state batteries, which are regarded as a decisive factor for electromobility in the future.

How the Volkswagen AG PhD program works

PhD students have three years at Volkswagen to complete their dissertations. Meanwhile, they work closely with their universities and professors and, of course, with the respective department from which they are assisted by their doctoral supervisor. After completing their dissertation, they can be offered permanent employment at Volkswagen.
