at the University of Warwick

Taking place over 5 days the admission fee includes accommodation on campus, meals, social events


Battery School Mission
  • To provide a comprehensive introduction to rechargeable batteries.
  • To give hands on experience of mixing, coating and cell making for lithium ion batteries.
  • To impart information from relevant areas of science and engineering.

The Battery School is a one-week residential course comprising a combination of lectures and laboratory work. The accommodation, meals and lectures will take place at Radcliffe house, a conference facility within the University of Warwick. The laboratories will take place at the Energy Innovation Centre (EIC) (£13m - Innovate UK), a national facility for battery manufacturing and research. The EIC has everything from coin cell scale to A5 lithium pouch cell manufacture of lithium ion cells. The event is an excellent opportunity for networking and many research collaborations have evolved from discussions during the course.

The course is run by Warwick's Electrochemical Engineering Group. 50% of the week will take place within the EIC where participants will get hands on experience of battery manufacturing in groups of maximum four people.

This course focuses is primarily intended for those wishing to conduct battery research and understand how to improve the quality of their cell manufacture. Delegates will be provided with Course Notes on arrival at the Battery School which will include lab notes and electronic copies of the lecture slides.
