MoZEES 2019 – a successful annual meeting
The second annual meeting for MoZEES was successfully completed on 24-25 April 2019, with more than 80 participants from the 38 partners. The first day was an open event, and included several newcomers to MoZEES. There is clearly an increased interest for zero emission transport and MoZEES.
On the first day there were 14 presentations made on a wide range of topics, from policy and systems to technology and materials. The presentations gave a good mix of results of MoZEES research performed over the past year. In addition, there were a couple of very relevant presentation made by our new International Research Partners at UC Davis and RWTH Aachen University. The first day ended with lots of excellent networking and a conference dinner.
On the second day there was a Phd and Post.doc. seminar in the morning, which was run in parallel with another couple of sessions. New of this year was a session on Markets and Innovations where 4 key Industry Partners in MoZEES presented the status and outlook on battery and fuel cell material technology, hydrogen storage and application of hydrogen in the maritime sector. This was very inspiring. The second day ended with presentations of Research Highlights and Results produced by some our PhD students and young researchers, and clearly showed that we are on track with our research.
In summary, the MoZEES Annual Meeting 2019 was a great success. The Annual Meeting is likely to continue to grow further in 2020, as we plan to invite more external partners for the open first day of the meeting. However, we do not want to expand the event beyond the capacity of the Son Spa hotel, which provides a wonderful platform for informal discussions.
