This week we had the chance to present the EIT Deep Tech Talent Initiative during the EIT RawMaterials Expert Forum: Materials for Battery Innovation, held on 10–11 October in Darmstadt, Germany.

The event surpassed expectations, setting new standards for collaboration and innovation in the field of energy storage. Hosted by EIT RawMaterials in partnership with Technologieland Hessen, the event brought together leading experts, researchers and industry stakeholders from around Europe to discuss the latest developments in battery materials and their potential impact on the future of energy.

During the conference, the Deep Tech Talent Initiative was presented to all stakeholders. Francesca Barisani, Outreach and Stakeholder Manager of the Initiative presented its objectives, the tools that it offers to upskill people in deep tech fields, and the immense impact it can have on Europe. Francesca expressed her enthusiasm for the event’s success, stating, “The Expert Forum: Materials for Battery Innovation has exceeded our expectations in terms of participation, engagement and the quality of discussions. We are now opening connections with key actors in the field willing to join the Deep Tech Talent Initiative”.

The forum featured a dynamic lineup of keynote speakers, including Christine Harzer, Learning Professional and Project Manager at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Ekaterina Laakso, Associate Professor at LUT University, Jon Guisasola Uriarte, Electrolyte and Sustainability Process Engineer at BASQUEVOLT, and Philippe Barboux, Emeritus Professor at Chimie ParisTech.
