We are pleased to invite you to the
Danish Battery Symposium 2019
at Department of Chemical Engineering in Aarhus
Tuesday, 12th of March 2019
from 9.00 to 16.30
The symposium dinner is from 18:00 at “Studenternes hus” in Aarhus
This is the 7th annual symposium in the Danish Battery Society and we look very much forward to welcome you. We have worked hard to put together an exciting program with internationally renowned speakers within flow batteries, battery safety and battery application. In addition to the talks, we will have member updates, a breakout session with three parallel tracks and a lab tour.
The symposium is hosted by the Department of Chemical Engineering in Aarhus and during the day, a tour of the battery laboratory facilities at AU will be given.
The invited speakers are:
Dr. Christine Minke MBA
on Economic and environmental assessment of vanadium redox flow batteries
Michael J. Aziz, Gene and Tracy Sykes Professor of Materials and Energy Technologies
on Organic-Based Aqueous Flow Batteries for Stationary Storage
Lars Kruse, Director
on Smart Cloud Control of Battery Energy Storage Systems
Patrik Johansson, Professor
on Promises, Problems and Proof-of-Concept for Ca and Al Batteries
The breakout session provide a unique opportunity to dig deeper into a subject and it has turned in to a recurrent event at our annual symposium. This year, the breakout session tracks will focus on flow batteries, battery safety and in-situ X-ray characterization.
The general meeting is planned for an afternoon session at 16:45, between the symposium and the dinner. For those not attending the general meeting, we will serve refreshments and encourage to networking with the other participants.
The symposium fee is:
DKK 500 for members (Both personal members and employees of member companies/institutes)
DKK 800 for non-members (You can sign up as a member just after signing up for the symposium below)
DKK 200 for student members (Bachelor- and master-student members)
After the symposium we will host a dinner. The society will cover half of the dinner costs so that we can offer a cozy dinner with battery aficionados for only DKK 200 per participant. You can sign up for the conference and as a member at the same time to get your discount at our website.
Signup Agenda General Meeting
The meeting will take place at “Studenternes hus” in Aarhus.
The address is Fredrik Nielsens Vej 4 | 8000 Aarhus C.
More information will follow.
Cromocol is visiting us again this year with a stand to display some of the Bio-Logic potentiostats.
The battery research is blooming in Denmark and a number of Danish companies are already focusing on developing materials and implementing batteries in commercial products.
The active players in Denmark are often small groups and to compete internationally, we see a need for exchange of knowledge and experience, i.e. characterization methods, lab facilities, types of batteries and market trends.
In recent years a number of interest groups have been founded to meet a need of sharing knowledge within a specific type of battery chemistry or a specific application of batteries, but so far no association has tried to gather and share information across the various research areas.
The purpose of the Danish Battery Society is to create a forum to share knowledge through targeted events and an annual meeting.
