Mid-term presentation of the ALIBABA project (Analysis and multiscale modeling of LI-ion BAtteries degradation for Bottom-up lifetime Assessment): November 13, 2013 (Paris, France)

On next November 13, 2013, a mid-term presentation of ALIBABA project results will be done in Paris by the coordinator, Dr. Marie-Liesse Doublet (ICG, Montpellier), within the French National Research Agency (ANR) Projects Review series. This project aims at developing a multiscale physicochemical model to study, understand and predict the electrochemical reactivity at the interfaces in lithium ion batteries. The project combines theoretical and experimental works. Prof. A.A. Franco (LRCS, Amiens) is involved in this project as Working Package leader for the development of the multiscale model based on the new computational framework MS LIBER-T.  

 

October 2013

Courses on "Fuel Cells" within the European Master MESC since October 1, 2013 (Amiens, France)

On October 1, 2013, Prof. A. A. Franco (LRCS, Amiens) starts to teach his Module "Fuel Cells" within the European Master Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion (MESC).  This course focuses on the recent research progresses and technological development on modern low, intermediate and high-temperature fuel cells. On a multidisciplinary basis, enriched with some epistemological concepts aiming to stimulate the students’ creativity, this course provides a complete and comprehensive critical review on crucial scientific topics related to fuel cell materials, electro-catalysis, transport phenomena and degradation. It provides the students with a deep learning on both theoretical and experimental tools to study, to analyze and to predict the performance and durability of fuel cells.
