Objective / Aim of Seminar:
Naval Science & Technological Laboratory (NSTL), under the aegis of Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), Ministry of Defence is organising a National Seminar on Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage (ECoS-2022) on 28th and 29th September 2022.
This Seminar aims to bring together the leading Scientists, Academicians, Technocrats and Researchers from various laboratories, universities, institutions, industries and armed forces to exchange ideas, share experiences and research results regarding all aspects including latest developments of electrochemical energy conversion and storage, and related fields.
This seminar will provide the multidisciplinary forum for innovators, researchers, educators, industrialists to present and discuss the recent innovations, trends, concerns, practical challenges encountered and the various solutions adapted to address the issues.
This improves professional networking at National level thereby achieving convergence of scientific knowledge and pave ways to develop efficient energy storage and conversion systems to meet the needs of the day / requirements of the nation. This Seminar will focus on topics of relevance to Armed Forces, DRDO, ISRO and other civilian applications.
