RISE organized a battery workshop focussing mainly on Na ion and solid-state battery on Feb 17, 2024. The chief guest of the program was  Professor Shirley Meng form The University of Chicago and other eminent experimental and computational scientists actively working in the area participated in the event. Here are few glimpses of the day!
