On the way to becoming a leading training provider in the field of battery cells

Our philosophy:

  • Close cooperation on a European level
  • Iterative exchange with industry partners during the development of the curriculum 
  • Agile approach to address changes in the market and quickly create added value
  • The learning lab as a nucleus, embedded in a high-level competence network
  • Inclusion of the production lines, for example through augmented reality applications
  • Innovative possibilities in training and curriculum
  • Innovative learning environments based on the new-work-principle
  • Virtually interconnected learning, targeted use of smart learning technologies 

Our values:

Shared values are an essential component for successful cooperation and continuous development. 

We the ELLB Team, accompanied by the Fraunhofer CeRRI - Center for Responsible Research and Innovation - have developed a common set of values. In doing so, we asked ourselves questions such as "How do we want to be? What do we and the ELLB stand for? What is the basis for our actions?"

Knowledge of batteries is essential now!

The rapid upscaling of battery cell production in Europe offers numerous growth opportunities, but also leads to large skill gaps: By 2030, several hundred thousand battery experts will be needed along the entire value chain. With suitable training and further education opportunities for specialists and managers, we offer private individuals and companies the chance to profit from this rapid growth. The possibilities are extensive: whether it's retraining employees from other technology areas (for example, from the field of the combustion engine) or the more in-depth qualification of employees in areas such as digitalization (for example, automation of production processes) - they all contribute to sustainable competitiveness in the battery market. 


Become part of the ELLB community, discover our upskilling and reskilling offers and gain unique insights into one of the most modern and largest research institution for battery cell production in Europe! Together we will contribute to transform Germany and Europe into a battery hotspot and thus drive the energy transition as an answer to the climate crisis.
