The 1st Workshop on Energy Storage Systems took place between 15 – 16 October at the Institute of Industrial Science of The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan. The event was jointly organised by The University of Tokyo and the Institut für Textiltechnik of RWTH Aachen University, short ITA. The workshop was attended by more than 30 representatives of industry, research and academic partners, leaders in energy storage solutions from Japan and all over Asia.

The goals of the workshop were to find common research areas and to identify potential for collaboration in the frame of joint research projects between Asia and Europe. As a result of the workshop and networking, applications for founding in the frame of e.g. Horizon 2020 projects aiming at the development of composite pressure vessels are planned. This will increase the cooperation between Japanese and European research and industry partners, which will directly benefit from the joint cooperation by combining research efforts. Furthermore, it is expected that these economic regions will grow closer together. The 2nd Workshop on Energy Storage Systems will take place at ITA during the summer 2020.
