The government of Extremadura and the Iberian Energy Storage Research Center (CIIAE) visit INL

June 2, 2023

During the past two half-days, INL hosted the visit from the Secretary-General of Science, Technology and Innovation of the Government of Extremadura along with the four Area Directors of the new Iberian Research Centre for Energy Storage (CIIAE).

This visit falls within the context of a memorandum of understanding signed during the XXXIII Spain-Portugal Summit between Portugal and Spain for the creation and development of the Iberian Centre for Research and Energy Storage (CIIAE) in the Autonomous Community of Extremadura, in which both governments highlighted INL as a relevant structure that in collaboration with the CIIAE will make an essential contribution to the Iberian energy storage strategy.

The main objective of this visit was to learn first-hand about the scientific and technological activity carried out by INL in strategic areas such as Energy, Environment, Health, Food, Digital Nanosystems, Advanced Materials and Computing, as well as a progress update regarding the CIIAE research departments.

Spain and Portugal are committed to reinforcing the Iberian cooperation in research and innovation in energy storage, articulating this collaboration through both centres: CIIAE and INL.
