Webinar Series


You are the welcome to participate in the 2nd International Battery Manufacturing Days - Webinar Series, taking place every day from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM (CEST), from 21st to 25th of June 2021.

This is the 2021 edition of the International Battery Manufacturing Days – Webinar Series that we have organized for the first time in 2020 within the context of the ARTISTIC Project dealing with battery manufacturing modeling and characterization, lead by Prof. Alejandro A. Franco and funded by the European Research Council. Last year event was a great success: the Webinar Series had 650+ registrants from all over the World and excellent feedback from attendees.

Free of charge, this Webinar Series is devoted to battery scientists and engineers, stakeholders as well as to students interested in the energy field. It aims at creating a forum of discussion about the links between battery manufacturing process and electrode properties, encompassing both (physical and machine learning) modeling and experimental approaches. The agenda combines talks given by the ARTISTIC project team members and invited lectures given by recognized battery scientists from Europe and North America.

After having introduced the online App "Data Explorer" in 2020, this year the ARTISTIC project team members will present the ARTISTIC latest works and will introduce the "Online Manufacturing Digital Twin", an online service which will allow users to launch battery electrode manufacturing simulations from Internet, to analyze and download the calculation results, among others, everything free of charge. Check the Program and register here

Confirmed invited speakers include Prof. Shirley Meng (University of California San Diego), Dr. Scott Roberts (Sandia National Lab), Dr. Sam Cooper (Imperial College of London), Elixabete Ayerbe (CIDETEC Energy Storage), Dr. Donal Finegan (NREL), Prof. Martin Bazant (MIT), Prof. Sebastian Thiede (University of Twente), Prof. Paul Shearing (UCL), Prof. Arnulf Latz (DLR), Prof. Bernard Lestriez (IMN), Dr. Margret Wohlfahrt-Mehrens (ZSW) and Dr. Yinghui Yin (SAFT Batteries).

From the ARTISTIC project side, speakers include Prof. Alejandro A. Franco (ARTISTIC project PI, Université de Picardie Jules Verne), Dr. Alain Ngandjong, Mehdi Chouchane, Teo Lombardo, Abbos Shodiev, Jiahui Xu, Chaoyue Liu, Marc Duquesnoy, Dr. Oier Arcelus and Dr. Fernando Caro.


On the week of June, 29th 2020, we have organized the ARTISTIC Project Webinar Series :  "First Battery Manufacturing Days". This webinar series aimed to develop a forum of discussion about the links between battery manufacturing process and electrode properties, encompassing both modeling and experimental approaches.  Free of charge, this Webinar Series was devoted to battery scientists and engineers as well as to students interested in the energy field. The schedule combined talks given by the ARTISTIC project members and invited talks given by active battery scientists from Europe and North America. In this occasion, the ARTISTIC project members presented their latest works and introduced the first version of the "Data Explorer", an interactive Web App which allow users to have access and reuse the project database. The invited speakers covered a wide diversity of linked topics, such as battery aqueous processing, autonomous discovery of materials, electrode microstructure-properties links, machine learning generation of electrode microstructures, impedance characterization of porous electrodes and much more ! The detailed program is available here.

The presentations from the "ARTISTIC Project Webinar Series - First Battery Manufacturing Days 2020" are now available below via videos. Please note that the presentation from Dr. Jianlin Li is not available yet due to unpublished results and the presentations from Dr. Arnaud Demortière, Prof. Ulrike Krewer, Dr. Antoni Forner-Cuenca will be made available soon.
