Battery and Energy Storage Workshop on December 16, 2010
December 14, 2010
We anticipate a DOE Hub large scale funding opportunity in ‘Battery and Energy Storage’ during next several months. We have arranged an internal half-day meeting on December 16 (1:00 to 4:30 pm; MRGN 129) to share our research/technical capabilities plus information gathered from the DOE. Both the Energy Center and the Birck Nanotechnology Center are coordinating this half-day event. The meeting will consist of brief research presentations by participants followed by an open discussion. An expected outcome would be to discuss internally – a way to move forward.
The details for technical areas are not yet known. But a typical large Hub proposal may require addressing several additional topics such as manufacturing, outreach/learning, technology commercialization/entrepreneurship, policy, consumer, economics and social sciences. It may therefore provide opportunity for a broader participation across the campus and some faculty may be aware of this activity and interested to attend the event.
Please rsvp to Jill Wable (email@example.com) if interested in attending. We have a limited space for about 30 people to attend.
