Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (SKT) is a private graduate research institute in Moscow, Russia. Established in 2011 in collaboration with MIT, SKT cultivates a new generation of researchers and entrepreneurs, promotes advanced scientific knowledge and fosters innovative technology to address critical issues facing the world.
SKT applies the best Russian and international research and educational practices, with particular emphasis on entrepreneurship and innovation. The Center for Energy Science and Technology (CEST) is one of the SKT research centers which is focused on the research and development of energy systems and technologies required by the growing applications of energy conversion and storage technologies in various end-user industries (renewable energy power generation). One of the key research areas of CEST is investigation of new materials and development of modelling tools for different electrochemical storage technologies including redox flow batteries and supercapacitors, and hence the proposed tasks within this proposal fits very well into this topic.
