Research Infrastructures

The main technological goal of StoRIES is to enable the development of innovative and sustainable energy storage solutions.

 

The 66 StoRIES infrastructures are open to users from the StoRIES consortium and beyond. The full list of the research infrastructures with the description will be published by the end of April 2022, together with the first call for transnational access.
