Welcome to a symposium by Doctor Akira Yoshino, Asahi Kasei Corporation and Professor Kristina Edström, Uppsala University on March 7th 2013
The Chemical Society of Japan will co-host "JAPAN-SWEDEN Science, Technology & Innovation Symposium 2013 in STOCKHOLM".
The symposium is focused on highlighting the development and future of the lithium-ion battery (LIB), gaining perspective on the key to success in research and development, know-how in launching a new business, and how to forecast future market developments.
The current commercial LIB configuration was invented by Dr. Yoshino in 1985. With its small size and light weight, the LIB rapidly became the mainstream in mobile phones, laptop computers, and many other portable electronic devices which have extended access to information throughout society. The global LIB market has grown to some 1 trillion yen (6 billion krona), and the research is increasingly focused on application of the LIB to large-scale systems including transportation, load-leveling in smartgrids, and stationary power storage.
