Beyond the Lab – Scaling Up Battery Innovations for Large Scale Production

The rapid and dynamic evolution of the North American battery industry comes along with a strong demand for innovations within the battery cell domain. Alongside the emergence of new cell generations such as Solid-State and Sodium-Ion technologies, there's a growing emphasis on revolutionary manufacturing processes like dry coating. Companies must maintain a continuous focus on innovation to say ahead of the curve.


In this workshop, you will gain comprehensive insights into the most important trends in battery production through three keynotes by renowned experts from the Fraunhofer research community and pick up stimulating impulses for later discussion. In an interactive "World Café" format, you will then exchange ideas with like-minded people from the North American battery industry, discuss future innovation needs and establish contacts with potential cooperation partners.


The main goal of this workshop is to stimulate knowledge exchange, support collaboration and drive innovation within the North American battery industry. Within the group of participants, we will elaborate the most urgent innovation needs in the battery cell industry and discuss possible solutions of the global research agenda with Fraunhofer experts.


We are delighted that the German American Chamber of Commerce®of the Midwest (GACC Midweste) is co-organizing the event!
