We make green mobility happen: Open Day at the chesco research factory

CO2 must be reduced in all areas of life in order to combat climate change. Mobility connects people, but is a major cause of CO2 emissions. At BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, the Center for Hybrid Electric Systems Cottbus (chesco) is a unique research center for alternative drive technologies. We are starting in the field of aviation and will extend the fields of application to the automotive, rail and shipping sectors in the future. More than 30 departments at BTU-Cottbus Senftenberg are now involved in our research into technologies for the climate-friendly mobility of the future. Our aim is to significantly shorten development cycles. That's why we combine development, production and testing centrally in one place - the chesco research factory - which is unique in Germany and Europe.

We would like to give all interested visitors the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes and gain an impression of our research work on the green mobility of tomorrow. Experience our equipment up close. We warmly invite you to our open day at the Center for Hybrid Electric Systems Cottbus (chesco) research factory in Cottbus-Dissenchen.
