Warwick Battery Days 2024

Stimulating interdisciplinary innovation on academic and industry battery research

Leading experts from across experimental, computational and industry battery research will gather for the inaugural of Warwick Battery Days (WBD 2024) workshop on June 20th-21st 2024. Hosting keynote and invited interdisciplinary talks, participants will hear about state-of-the-art research and explore future opportunities in battery innovation that align with industry and government strategy. With funding from the UKRI (EPSRC) and the University of Warwick Ideas Factory, the workshop aims to make new, cross-disciplinary connections that generate novel research ideas.

Hosted by the Department of Chemistry and Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), the WBD workshop will be held at the main campus of the University of Warwick. The programme features a distinguished lineup of speakers from academia including Saiful Islam (University of Oxford), Emma Kendrick (University of Birmingham), Paul Shearing (University of Oxford), Chris-Kriton Skylaris (University of Southampton), and Pooja Goddard (University of Loughborough), and from industry (BIOVIA, illumion, Nyobolt, Schrodinger and TA Waters) alongside several emerging early-career researchers.

The UK Battery Strategy, published by the Department of Business and Trade in December 2023, highlights how demand for batteries is expected to rise over the coming decades. With the UK ranked third in the world for research quality into industrial batteries, the ambition of this first WBD workshop is to share knowledge and expertise and facilitate discussions that build a strong interdisciplinary community to innovate battery optimisation.Feedback from this expert community will help shape development of further Warwick Battery Days.
