Previous workshops

BASE organises digital workshops 4 – 6 times per year. Everyone within the centre is invited, and these are generally also open to the public both nationally and internationally. You can find information about the upcoming events here on our website, under “News”, or by registering to our email list (contact Therese Eriksson). The topics for the workshops can be anything within the battery field, either more detailed and research oriented, more general or relating to one of our cross-cutting activities. We have speakers both from within the centre and also internationally invited speakers. Information about previous workshops can be found below. If you have suggestions on which topic we should organize the next workshop on, don’t hesitate to contact us.
