On February 13-14, 2020, the Second International Scientific and Technical Conference “BatteryInnovation 2020” was held in Tolyatti, which can already be called the traditional annual meeting of the scientific and technical elite of the production and processing of chemical current sources.

For two days, key industry issues were discussed at the Zhiguli Valley technopark site, where Russian and foreign manufacturers of rechargeable batteries and their accessories, technical experts, representatives of research institutes, universities, professional industry associations, and government agencies gathered. The organizer of the event was AKOM Group of Companies and the Accumulator of Innovation Scientific and Technical Center (Samara Region).>

Among the delegates are representatives of organizations and enterprises from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Turkey, the Republic of Belarus.

The main goal of the Conference is to solve the problems of creating a competitive, sustainable, structurally balanced industry of chemical power sources, capable of effective self-development through integration into the global technological environment, development and application of advanced technologies that ensure the introduction of innovations and increased labor productivity aimed at the formation and the development of new markets, effectively solving the problem of ensuring the economic development of the country.

A new and very important element of the conference was the holding of a scientific and technical competition for young scientists "Developer of breakthrough technologies for chemical current sources." The competition is aimed at involving young scientists, researchers, students and graduate students in the activities of the chemical current source industry, the commercialization of scientific and technical projects, the formation of a strategic reserve of managerial, technological and engineering personnel.

During the thematic sessions, the participants of BatteryInnovation 2020 discussed the state of the industry of chemical power sources, new technological solutions in this area, marketing of battery products, staffing of the industry, etc.
