Just LG Energy Solution Wroclaw donated more than PLN 600 000 for the development of students at the Wroclaw University of Technology.
The cooperation between LG Energy Solution Wrocław and the Wrocław University of Technology is an opportunity for the development of the entire electromobility sector in Poland.

LG Energy Solution Wrocław - Wroclaw University of Technology: research work, internships and apprenticeships
Thanks to the support, an electromobility laboratory dedicated primarily to the students of our new faculty will be established at our department. The agreement signed today is the culmination of our cooperation to date, and the amount donated will be used to purchase, among other things, power electronics systems related to electric vehicles.
Mateusz Dybkowski, Ph.D., professor of the university, associate dean for research and development
The grant for the construction of the laboratory is not the only support for the Wroclaw University of Technology. LG Energy Solution Wrocław has also assumed patronage of the Electromobility course conducted at the university's Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
In the 2021/2022 academic year, we launched a new course of study at our faculty - electromobility. In order to conduct it and further develop it, we need a suitable laboratory base. We are not able to obtain all the equipment ourselves, among other things, due to their high cost, which is why we have partnered with LG Energy Solution Wrocław, which supports us in this regard.
says Prof. Waldemar Rebizant, dean at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at Wrocław University of Technology
