Keith Stevenson, Director of Skoltech Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage: “This is the 3rd conference of young scientists, and the main goal is to invite leading experts of the world level who deal with issues of electrochemical energy storage. So that they can share in their lectures a fundamental vision of the concepts of future solutions with our students and students of other countries.”

Shinichi Komaba (Kyoto University, Japan): “It seemed to me that the level of knowledge in the field of electrochemistry in Russia is not so high, but after this conference my opinion changed for the better. Before the beginning of the conference, I visited Skoltech and it is an amazing place. The participants in our discussions are really interested, ask many questions and actively participate in the discussions. I’m really impressed by the young specialists in Russia. We are negotiating with the Skoltech’s professors about mutual cooperation and I hope for a quick positive result of our work.”
