SK Group chairman Chey Tae-won on Friday stressed the collaboration between the industry and academia for innovation in battery technology.

The chairman also said the collaboration is critical for the growth of the battery ecosystem.

Chey credited the recent success in the battery industry to the collaboration between researchers in both the industry and academia, at a webinar hosted by the Chey Institute for Advanced Studies.

Some of the results of these collaboration include development of new materials for next-generation batteries and recycling of dead batteries, the chairman said.

The SK Group chairman has shown interest in battery technology for a long time. The Chey Institute for Advanced Studies hosted a conference called Battery to Semiconductor in 2019. Chey has shown strong interest in securing core technology and collaboration with academia.

M. Stanley Whittingham, 2019 Nobel laureate and professor at Binhamton University, was also a speaker at the webinar.

In June 2020, SK Innovation said it will collaborate with Nobel laureate and professor John B Goodenough of the University of Texas at Austin to develop next generation batteries.

At the webinar, the chairman made no mention of the recent ruling by the US International Trade Commission that determined that SK Innovation has stole trade secret from LG Energy Solution. SK Innovation has been handed down a 10-year import ban.
