EPFL organizes the 17th edition of the MODVAL Symposium on Modeling and Experimental Validation of Electrochemical Energy Technologies.  Taking place yearly in March/April, it alternates locations mostly between Switzerland and Germany, and is hosted by a local academic institution. 

The focus of the 17th edition is to present advances in modelling and in experimental work for model validation, for fuel cells, batteries and electrolysers. Attendance is ~120, from academia and industry, from Europe and overseas. The symposium provides good opportunity to create new proximity R&D collaborations.
