nanoGateway International Conference 2019

Connecting the key agents to provide strategies and solutions to current and future challenges in energy storage

Appreciation Message

Dear Participant of the International Conference Mission 10.000

Thank you very much for having enriched the International Conference Mission 10.000: Batteries with your presence and active contribution.

For two days, we had the pleasure to bring together 140 participants from all over the world, 10 inspiring talks by globally renowned speakers, two stimulating roundtables, several poster presentations and contributed talks by notable researchers.

The Mission 10.000: Batteries conference was a resounding success, bringing researchers, innovators, and policy-makers together to discuss current and future trends in battery storage. Talks and posters ranged from fundamental beyond-Li-ion research to EU-level deployment of Li-ion battery industry. The decarbonization of the world’s economy and the transition to sustainable energy are great challenges, but participants of the conference were armed with strategies and solutions. The development of these electrochemical energy storage technologies will open the door for millions of new jobs in powerful new industries, allow the EU to capture a larger segment of the world’s battery storage market, and provide a better future for generations to come.

You may also find all the photos and videos of the event on this website.
We look forward to seeing you at the next event and hope that you enjoyed this initiative.

With Best Regards,

Mission 10.000: Batteries conference

Closing the cycle of the Mission 10.000 International Conferences, INL is hosting the Mission 10.000: Batteries between 10-11 October.

After the success of 2018, this new program gives continuity to the nanoGateway collaborative initiative that aims to solve complex challenges by increasing the impact of research on issues of social relevance and involving all relevant actors of the POCTEP region.

Battery storage represents a key component in Europe’s decarbonization efforts and transition to sustainable energy. The electrification of vehicles and the widespread implementation of renewable energy will both challenge current battery technologies and demand future battery technologies with higher energy density, higher rate capability, lower cost, and lower environmental impact. Currently, Li-ion battery technology is the leading choice for electric vehicles (eVehicles) and electrochemical energy storage (EES) for the grid due to its energy density, cycle life, and decreasing costs. However, securing access to Li and Co is a major concern for the European Union, a significant driver for innovation in battery storage technologies. It is difficult to predict the dominant battery technology of the future, therefore efforts have been made to develop a comprehensive EU strategy for battery storage research, innovation, and industry.

The Mission 10.000: Batteries brings together researchers, innovators, and policy-makers to discuss the current and future trends in battery storage to help position the EU as a major player in the future battery storage market, a multi-billion euro market that is set to grow rapidly in the near future.
