Shortly after, the introduction of the Advisory Board members, the consortium laying the groundwork for the day’s intensive discussions.

The heart of the afternoon was dedicated to exploring the progress and future directions of the project’s various work packages. The journey began with an insightful dive into the world of sensors and data collection, where the team shared exciting updates and addressed potential challenges. This was followed by a deep exploration into the intricacies of multiphysics batteries modeling, revealing the sophisticated interplay between physics and innovation. The discussion on data models for Li-ion batteries then shed light on the crucial data-driven approaches that are shaping our understanding of battery technology.

After a brief coffee break, the consortium reconvened with renewed vigor. The concept of a digital twin-based Battery Management System (BMS) with hybrid AI took center stage, showcasing the cutting-edge technologies driving ENERGETIC forward. The focus then shifted to the innovative predictive maintenance strategies facilitated by the Battery Cloud, followed by an engaging session on the first and second life assessments of batteries, highlighting the project’s commitment to sustainability.

The day culminated with an in-depth discussion on communication, dissemination, and exploitation strategies. The team brainstormed on enhancing visibility through web and social media channels, setting ambitious KPIs, and planning for future conferences and meetings. This session underscored the importance of effectively sharing our groundbreaking work with the broader community.

Day 2: Collaborative Efforts and Future Planning

The second day commenced early at the THIL New York conference room, where the focus shifted to project management and coordination. The morning session provided a comprehensive overview of deliverables, milestones, financial updates, and necessary grant agreement amendments. This transparent and structured approach ensured everyone was aligned and prepared for the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Collaborative round tables then provided a dynamic space for partners to engage deeply with each other, fostering cross-collaboration among work packages. These sessions were interspersed with a coffee break, allowing for informal interactions and spontaneous idea exchanges.

As the meeting drew to a close, a final wrap-up session captured the essence of the collaborative efforts, reinforcing the shared commitment to ENERGETIC’s ambitious goals. A tour of the lab followed, offering attendees a firsthand look at the cutting-edge technologies being developed and sparking inspiration for future innovations.

The event concluded with a lunch at THIL, where participants reflected on the achievements of the past two days and looked forward to the exciting journey ahead.
