I am pleased to invite you to attend the Workshop on “Next generation of competitive Li-ion batteries to meet customer expectations – made in Europe” to be held during the TRA Conference 2018 (http://www.traconference.eu/) in Vienna, on the 19th April 2018 in the Club Room.


This workshop is jointly hosted by EU Horizon 2020 projects SPICY (http://www.spicy-project.eu/), FiveVB (http://www.fivevb.eu/) and eCAIMAN (http://www.ecaiman.eu/). The objective of this Workshop is to give to the stakeholders in industry and academia an update on the ongoing research activities in field of high energy Li-ion batteries through EU Projects - SPICY, FiveVB and eCAIMAN. The workshop is divided into three main sessions; Scientific-, Standardization- and Manufacturing, addressing audiences from researchers to eminent representatives from the automotive and battery manufacturing industries. The agenda for the workshop is attached.


As the workshop is limited to 40 participants, your confirmation of attendance would be greatly appreciated. Please do so via email to boschidar.ganev(at)ait.ac.at.


Note that the event is held as a side event at TRA and to be able to attend this event, you require a conference pass.
