70 participants from 20 countries made the last EMEA-workshop in June 2019 a success. The coming EMEA2020 Workshop will be the 8th workshop in this series. Material developments and ion exchange membrane based systems for energy applications will be discussed by representatives from research and industry with the focus set on anion exchange membranes. In addition to invited and contributed talks, the workshop features a panel discussion, in which experts from academia and industry will discuss the development of the field. A poster exhibition offers scientists and especially young researchers and students the opportunity to present their work. A price for the best poster will be awarded. A guided tour through the DLR Institute of Networked Energy Systems (former NEXT ENERGY) research laboratories, a get-together and a conference dinner will provide additional opportunities for lively scientific exchange in a familiar atmosphere.
