The NEMOSHIP project consortium met in Brussels (Belgium) on 16th and 17th January 2024 for its second General Assembly. 

The second NEMOSHIP General Assembly, hosted by Vrije Universiteit Brussel, set sail with a dynamic agenda, steering the course towards groundbreaking advancements in sustainable transportation and energy systems. This pivotal day was marked by immersive technical sessions, crucial management discussions, and exploration of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.

Technical sessions on BESS data and systems:

Participants delved into technical sessions dedicated to Battery Energy Storage Systems data and systems, uncovering the latest breakthroughs that are propelling the maritime industry towards electrification and sustainable practices. The discussions navigated through the complexities of cutting-edge technology, providing insights into the future of maritime innovation.

Exploring state-of-the-art laboratory facilities:

The heart of the assembly pulsated with a series of visits to Vrije Universiteit Brussel’s top-tier laboratory facilities. Researchers immersed themselves in the Battery Innovation Centre, witnessing firsthand the strides being made in battery research. The Power Electronics and Reliability Lab showcased the synergy between efficiency and power electronics, exemplifying the commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology.

The ETEC lab, a hub for standardized and customized battery tests, underscored the commitment to quality and precision in the development of sustainable energy solutions. Meanwhile, the Electric & Autonomous Vehicle & Smart Charging Lab unveiled cutting-edge technologies tailored for the vehicles of the future, demonstrating the project’s dedication to pioneering advancements in the field.

Towards a sustainable Future:

As the first day drew to a close, participants reconvened for a visit to the Vrije Universiteit Brussel laboratory. These facilities transcend mere physical spaces; they are sanctuaries of excellence where the research team immerses itself in the relentless pursuit of sustainable innovation. The NEMOSHIP project is not just an assembly; it’s a movement that propels us towards a future where maritime innovation intersects with environmental responsibilitys

NEMOSHIP’s second Annual General Meeting came to a successful conclusion on the second day, a testament to the incredible spirit of collaboration that drives our maritime innovation journey. The day was dedicated to the presentation of the SEABAT and AENEAS projects, followed by an open discussion on synergies and joint dissemination activities.

Our warmest thanks to all our partners for their support and dedication to the success of these two days.
