Which direction is battery technology heading? Top representatives of the industry will discuss this and other questions at the Future Battery Forum from 10th to 11th December. Founding partners of the event, which takes place for the first time this year, are Varta, Wacker Neuson Group, and Akasol. The platform brings together key industry players, aims to promote international exchange and to answer the most pressing questions about the future. Varta will be represented in the program with two keynote speakers.
Due to Corona, the premiere of the Future Battery Forum, “Battery Technologies 2025: Paths to Transformation“, will be held digitally. The management conference brings together the most important representatives of the battery technology value chain – from manufacturers to suppliers and users. It is intended to promote international, cross-sector exchange, generate new ideas, create synergies, and provide a platform for the discourse on the opportunities and challenges of the future. Already 1000 participants have registered for the event in December.
