Project DEBUT WM - Digitally Enhanced Battery Ubiquitous Training West Midlands


Funded by InnovateUK Faraday Battery Challenge, the Digital Enhanced Battery Ubiquitous Training-West Midlands (DEBUT-WM) project convenes regional academic, local government and industrial experts to deliver a new and innovative battery manufacturing L2 &L3 training programme for the West Midlands.

Building on already established leading regional battery technical and scaleup know-how and capabilities in Warwick Manufacturing Group and expertise in the wider regional battery industry DEBUT-WM will harness both physical and digital learning techniques and technologies building on and informed by the National Electrification Skills Framework to deliver a unique learning experience to grow the region's workforce, whilst also providing the catalyst for wider UK engagement based on regional partnerships to enable workforce skills transition developing high value competencies through re-skilling, up skilling and new skills in battery manufacturing. This ambitious and novel blend of traditional physical training coupled with 'state of the art' immersive digital technologies such as augmented (AR), virtual (VR) and mixed reality (MR) will enable students to navigate the whole battery manufacturing process in a safe and structured manner from initial electrode manufacture, cell assembly, formation, aging and testing to module and complete battery pack assembly.
