We Are Everywhere


A meeting of the BIRD consortium was held in Israel. The consortium includes research groups and companies from Israel and the U.S. collaborating on the subject of "Lithium and Sodium Metal Solid State Batteries for Advanced Energy Storage Applications". In the framework of the BIRD consortium, Prof. Aurbach group develop lithium and sodium solid state cells. Thank you to the Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD)  Foundation and Prof. Noked group (BIU) for organized the meeting.
