The German office of the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN) and local agencies, via KTN, are inviting UK researchers in e-mobility for a subsidised three day mission in October to Baden-Wuertemberg, the home state of some of Germany’s biggest car manufacturers.
Organised in partnership with Baden-Württemberg International (a not for profit state-owned agency) and e-mobil BW (an innovation agency covering electric mobility for the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg) for 10 to 13 October, the mission comprises visits to the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology, Ulm University (including the Helmholtz Institute Ulm Electrochemical Energy Storage) or the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology.
Visit to World of Energy Solutions, Stuttgart
The visit also includes a company visit as well as to the World of Energy Solutions, an international trade fair, conference and networking platform for battery and storage technologies, fuel cell and hydrogen applications and future mobility solutions.
The UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN) is a Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Foreign and Commonwealth Office jointly funded network for engaging with local science and innovation communities in support of UK policy overseas. It is offering to part fund the visit (which otherwise costs €650 per person for all transfers in Baden-Württemberg, accommodation for three nights and all meals).
Application process - deadline 17 June
The deadline for registration is 17 June. Places are limited and participants should either be universities researchers or have a very strong focus on research in their work if they work for a private company. Should interest exceed the places available SIN will make a selection to ensure an even spread of representation from the UK.
Terms for participation, the itinerary and an application form can be downloaded.
The completed form should be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
