Challenge Statements 1 + 2
Battery technology keeps evolving to meet the technology trend with increasing power density. One path is developing new cell chemistry like solid-state batteries or fuel cell batteries. The other path is improving the mechanical design like CTP (cell to Pack) or CTC/B. In order to achieve either of them, there are different challenges that battery makers or auto OEMs will face. We're looking for innovative materials/solutions which can enable, speed up or enhance such paths.
Materials (including coatings, substrates, and additives) that improve battery performance with a view of the migration from current to future technologies, that can improve the energy density and efficiency or materials that provide functional improvements to battery materials, including safety
Materials that can improve the costs of production of current and future technologies in energy storage. Multifunctional materials that can combine properties (e.g., insulation and flame retardancy)
We are uniquely positioned to drive consumer engagement through both physical and digital solutions. We are looking for ways to enable brands to build stronger connections with their consumers while at the same time giving consumers more flexibility in defining the product and experience at the point of sale.
We are looking for solutions to help brands elevate their consumer retail experience in-store and through e-commerce. This may include enabling product customization at the point of sale or digital retail technologies.
We are looking for solutions for apparel and footwear brands to authenticate their products, reliably and for the life of the product (without using a separate app). A key goal is to help consumers seamlessly authenticate their purchase and create strong engagement with the product.
Sustainability is at the core of what we do. Avery Dennison has ambitious targets concerning reduced waste, recycled content, and the recyclability and compostability of our products.
Avery Dennison is looking for solutions that can help us expand Consumer Goods packaging reuse solutions to improve the circular economy, with a particular interest in solving challenges with reverse logistics, packaging traceability, reuse big data AI, Reuse process automation, End of life management and recycling.
