Two very successful days of presentations, discussions and activities related to batteries where held at IFE 14-15 February.

We were very happy when 17 participants took the chance to learn about all steps of producing a battery during the MoZEES Battery Days (Day 2). The participants were a very mixed audience and included Master and Ph.D students, University teachers, industry partners and people who are not working directly with science of the batteries. At three different stations, everybody had the possibility to learn and also actively perform all necessary steps from the raw materials to a working battery. The organizing team from IFE had the impression that all participants appreciated the possibility to see and thus understand problems occurring in the lab, which might not be taken into consideration in theory.
