2nd Swiss & Surrounding Battery Days

August 26-28 2019


Empa, PSI, and BFH jointly organize the 2nd edition of the Swiss & Surrounding Battery Days taking place on August 26-28 at Empa Academy in Dübendorf. The aim of this event is to provide young Swiss researchers, active in the field of battery materials research and cell manufacturing, a platform to present their results and to connect to renowned battery researchers from the surrounding countries. The event offers a unique opportunity to strengthen and expand the network among and to the Swiss battery community. The scope of the event ranges from the synthesis and characterization of battery materials to their integration into electrodes and cells, including topics related to cell manufacturing. August 28 is reserved for talks concerning the European battery agenda and aspects of industrial cell manufacturing at scale.
