Expert Forum – Sustainable Materials for Future Mobility: E-drives, Magnets, Batteries

October 23, 2018 @ 8:30 am - October 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Under the umbrella of the newly formed European Battery Alliance (EBA), EIT RawMaterials and its partner TU Darmstadt organise a 2-days workshop on Sustainable Materials for Future Mobility: E-drives. Magnets. Batteries, which will take place on 23-24 October 2018 in Darmstadt, Germany. The workshop is a next step in implementing some of the action points raised in the EBA Action Plan and the Commissions Strategic Plan on Batteries; that is, to create fertile grounds for the creation of cross-value chain alliances, define and implement demonstration projects, and define an agenda towards sustainable battery technology. On the second day, we look into the very much related subject matter of magnets and e-drives. Representatives from industry, academia, and research organisations (incl. non-KIC members) working in the field of strategic and critical raw materials for electrification are cordially invited to attend and discuss with us. Among others, we have confirmed participation from representatives of the Finnish Minerals Group, Savannah Resources, Umicore, Bühler Redex, Transport & Environment, Leading Edge Materials, Lynas, Fraunhofer, Uppsala University, and Vacuumschmelze.
