  3. The 10th GREEN Symposium

The 10th GREEN Symposium

In GREEN, cutting edge researches have been carried out with close collaboration between simulations and experiments. The purpose of this symposium is to discuss ongoing research activities on computational science and their collaboration with experiments in GREEN, especially in the field of solid-state Li battery, Li-air battery, and solar cells, with having an invited lecture on the research of battery materials based on the simulation-experiment collaboration within the ImPACT program. Two new research groups in computational science field in GREEN will also be introduced.

Progress reports by the guest researchers of the GREEN Open Laboratory, which is one of the very important projects of GREEN, are presented as before, as well as the GREEN Prize is granted at this symposium.
