Welcome to the 14th Symposium on Fuel Cell and Battery Modeling and Experimental Validation - ModVal 14

ModVal Titelbild Karlsruhe

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) - Venue: AkademieHotel Karlsruhe

ModVal 14 is the 14th event in a series of annual international symposia on fuel cell and battery modelling and experimental validation. The aim of the symposium is to present and discuss recent advances in science and technology that are related to the modelling and simulation of fuel cells and batteries, as well as experimental techniques for model validation. The Symposium provides a forum for researchers in both academia and industry, promoting personal contacts and stimulating new collaborations.
