The Battery Innovation Days (BID) celebrated its third edition in the heart of Bordeaux, France on November 14 and 15, 2023, highlighting the crucial theme of "fostering a competitive and sustainable European battery value chain.
Utilising the chance to present its innovative research at the Battery Innovation Days, CoFBAT staged its latest innovations as an official exhibitor at the exhibition hall.
