MeBattery 1st Progress Meeting in Vienna
Half a year into the project, the MeBattery consortium came together for their 1st Progress Meeting on November 3-4, 2022. The meeting was kindly hosted by IST Austria at their beautiful campus in the woods at Klosterneuburg near Vienna, Austria.
The first meeting day was dedicated to the individual partners’ progress in the technical work packages. Being a small consortium of just 6 partners, there was a trustful atmosphere from the start as the 13 participants reported on their activities and dived into discussions right away. On the second day, the partners went deeper into technical discussions aiming towards decisions to be taken on how to move forward in developing a new flow battery technology that overcomes the limitations of current state-of-the-art battery technologies in terms of sustainability, cycle life, recyclability, energy and power decoupling, cost, and energy density.
In addition to the science, the partners communication and dissemination activities were put on the agenda. The consortium has already started to be active with joining initiatives such as the FLORES network or submitting first publications. Furthermore, the partners’ individual plans for exploiting the project’s results were discussed. They will be part of the project’s central strategy to make the most out of the project’s impact.
