DEMOBASE final review meeting with project officer

DEMOBASE partner

On December, 10th 2020 DEMOBASE (DEsign and MOdelling for improved BAttery Safety and Efficiency) had a successful final review meeting with the project officer Marina Kousoulidou from INEA. The project partners presented their activities and results which were achieved after a three year project duration. The DEMOBASE project started its activities in October 2017 with 11 partners from France, Italy, Sweden and Germany and a total budget of 7,451,520 €.

DEMOBASE objectives were challenging: cutting down the development and testing efforts for e-drivetrains at least by a factor 2 and improving their efficiency by 20%.Additionally, the focus of the project was on safety as well as new concepts developed for fleet applications. After three years of joint cooperation the partners successfully showed the achievement of the project objectives. Detailed information will be published in the upcoming “DEMOBASE general publication” in eTansportation review.

The fire safety of electric vehicles within DEMOBASE will introduce at the conference Fires in Vehicles – FIVE 2018 in Borås, Sweden (3-4 October 2018)

5th International conference on Fires in vehicles will bring together scientists, regulators, test engineers, industry, supplier, insurance companies and other organisations from the diverse field of transportation to discuss important fire issuses. 

The lecture ‚FireFOAM to model inside battery thermal disorder propagation‘ by INERIS will be presented at 10th FM Global Open Sources CFD Fire Modelling Workshop in Norwood, USA (30-31 May 2018)

FM Global collaborates with academia and industry on the development of advanced CFD fire models in FireFOAM. While these CFD fire models are based on a wide variety of modern modeling approaches, extensive cooperation between research groups in industry and academia for model development and validation is mutually beneficial. FM Global has organized the Open Source CFD Fire Modeling Workshop with the intent to initiate and enhance cooperation of CFD fire modeling efforts based on modern, open-source CFD approaches.


The DEMOBASE-project will be present at Transport Research Arena TRA 2018 in Vienna, Austria (16-19 April 2018)

The TRA 2018 will be hosted and organised by the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology as Cher of the Management Committee, the Austrian Institute for Technology as Chair of the Programme Committee and Austria Tech as Chair of the Organising Committee.
