About the Seminar
Established in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 2008, the Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA) mission is through in-house, collaborative and partnership activities in North America, and creates the research foundation for Toyota’s advanced product development. TRINA’s partnerships with societies such as the Electrochemical Society (ECS), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and North American Catalysis Society (NACS) has fostered and supported a number of exciting research themes. Here, projects from the Toyota-Electrochemical Society Young Investigator Fellowship, with a emphasis on research into batteries, will be presented and discussed. TRINA’s in-house research on magnesium batteries and solid-state batteries will also be presented and discussed. As we celebrate our 15-year Anniversary at TRINA, we envision future research to enable breakthrough applications for a sustainable mobility society.
