NanoKTN Announces Hosting of Battery Manufacturing Conference at University of Warwick

The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), one of the UK’s primary knowledge-based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, is holding its sell-out one day Battery Manufacturing conference today at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), University of Warwick.

Battery Manufacturing 2013 is sponsored and hosted by the WMG centre High Value Manufacturing Catapult and features many of the UK battery industry’s key players. The conference will include presentations on the impact that nanotechnology is delivering in the battery industry, as well as the challenges the industry currently faces in the drive to push innovation and reduce costs.

Nanotechnology is now delivering significant impact in the future of battery manufacture and energy storage, and delegates can expect to learn more about the use of nanotechnology in the manufacture of a new generation of innovative devices using nanomaterials. The event is the opportunity to discuss the key challenges and issues in this area and the future benefits that will deliver new and innovative battery and energy storage solutions.

The conference aims to connect the battery manufacturing supply chain and provide latest updates on commercial, academic and government initiatives relevant to battery manufacturing. Keynote presentations will be delivered by the WMG centre HVM Catapult on the global challenge of low carbon mobility, and Jaguar Land Rover on an automotive OEM’s perspective on battery technology. Further presentations will be delivered by Nexeon, Nokia Research Centre, Johnson Matthey Battery Systems, the University of St Andrews, and the FP7 National Contact Point for Surface Transport.

The conference programme is introduced by Dr Martin Kemp, Theme Manager, NanoKTN, “With the High Value Manufacturing Catapult at Warwick, we have put this one day conference together for the battery supply chain from academia/research through to end users. It follows the sell-out success of the inaugural event in 2012 hosted by Sharp Laboratories Europe, and will provide an excellent opportunity for 100+ delegates to network and find partners, and to take away best practice from the UK’s leading organisations in this space.”
