Empa, PSI, and BFH jointly organize the 4th edition of the Swiss Battery Days taking place on August 29-31 at Empa Academy in Dübendorf. The aim of this event is to provide young 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 Europe. The event offers a unique opportunity to strengthen and expand the network 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 31 is reserved for talks on aspects of industrial cell manufacturing at scale and national/international initiatives.
