The aim of this event is to recognise achievements of Prof. Dr. Petr Novák and, at the same time, to provide young Swiss and European researchers, active in the field of battery materials and cell manufacturing, a platform to present their results and to connect to renowned battery researchers from Europe. The event offers a unique opportunity to strengthen and expand the network among and to the Swiss battery community. The Industry Day afternoon is organised by the Swiss national platform for battery industry and research partners - iBAT. The scope of the event ranges from the synthesis and characterisation of battery materials to their integration into electrodes and cells, including topics related to cell manufacturing and characterisation.

In the name of the organising committee, we are looking forward to welcoming you to three stimulating conference days!
