Polymer electrolytes have a long history in battery research. Both material development and our fundamental understanding of ion transport mechanisms in polymers have evolved with it. Today we are at a crossroads where researchers see many possible paths into the future of batteries – and have a variety of battery technologies to choose from. Diversification in many different cell chemistries opens up new avenues to explore. Experts encourage us to completely rethink some concepts and findings from days gone by.
This week our colleagues, Sergio Rodríguez, María Martínez & Maica Morant together with Prof. Armand, took part in #ESPE23 – 1st European Symposium on #Polymer #Electrolytes for #Battery Applications of the @ClusterPolis, at @KITKarlsruhe.

During the first European Symposium on Polymer Electrolytes for Battery Applications (ESPE23), which took place from September 25th to 27th, 2023 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, more than 100 participants from all over Europe came together to present their latest results and network.
The program included 30 lectures as well as a poster session, several networking sessions and a symposium dinner. Bing-Xuan Shi, a doctoral student at the Justus Liebig University in Gießen, was awarded the poster prize provided by rhd instruments GmbH & Co. KG for his outstanding research work, which he presented at the symposium.
