- News, General news, European news

On May 28-29, the 4th annual conference of BATTERY 2030+ gathered over 300 participants in Grenoble for two days of great presentations, discussions and networking opportunities on many different facets of battery research in Europe and beyond.

The Battery 2030+ annual conference, which took place in Grenoble 28th-29th May, attracted more than 300 scientists from Europe and beyond, actively involved in pushing the frontiers of design and materials for current and future generations of electrochemical storage devices, with particular emphasis on renewable, eco-friendly batteries.

Highlights included an overview of the EU project Battery Interface Genome – Materials Acceleration Platform (BIG-MAP), where ILL is involved in serveral pioneering research topics, such as the establishment of a multi-modal, multi-site battery characterisation platform and openware applications for autonomous analysis of spectroscopic data. Also, the importance of correlated methodologies was underlined with reference to the Battery Characterisation Hub, co-founded by the CEA, ILL and ESRF.

Bettina Schwaighofer represented the ILL on the EU project ‘ReMade@ARI’ stand, which received many inquiries on how European research facilities can assist academic and industry R&D actors to explore the increasing and crucial use of recyclable, locally resourced battery materials in the context of the EU Green Deal.
