Welcome to the Battery Innovation @ GIANT website dedicated to modern battery development!
This initiative is the result of a successful workshop held in 2017 and co-organised by the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the European Synchrotron Research Facility (ESRF) and the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), which brought together battery researches from primarily the Grenoble region with synchrotron x-ray and neutron beamline scientists to discuss recent exciting progress in battery research, parallel advances in characterization methods and possible coactions.
A clear outcome of this event was the wish stated by participants from all fields of expertise to create a platform for exchange and information in order to address questions which are most relevant to the problems inherent in this form of electricity storage, thus directly confronting a major technical challenge crucial to modern society.
By opening up the dialogue to a more general audience, notably in the academic and industrial domains, the organisers hope is to promote a cross-fertilisation of ideas and solutions for future battery R&D.
Through a program of seminars, newsletters and a repository of up-to-date research articles, we intend to lay the groundwork for a vibrant and active community but of course your input and collaboration is essential for the success of the project!
