International Conference on Sodium Batteries in Ulm
From December 5 to 8, 2022, the 7th ICNaB 2022 - International Science Conference on Sodium Batteries - took place in Ulm, Germany. The event, organized by the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) and the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research (ZSW), was opened by Dr. Margret Wohlfahrt-Mehren (ZSW) and Prof. Dr. Stefano Passerini (HIU). A total of 41 presentations and one poster session were on the program. This year's event, attended by over 200 researchers and numerous representatives from science, industry and politics, focused particularly on the transition from laboratory research to mass production, which poses new challenges for both industry and academia. In addition, the conference addressed necessary infrastructure investments as well as sustainable production and recycling. A scientific poster session gave participants, especially young scientists, a platform for discussion. The Cluster of Excellence POLiS was also involved in the 7th ICNaB, among others with presentations by Prof. Dr. Maximilian Fichtner and Dr. Sonia Dsoke and with various poster contributions.
