E-Magic at a glance
E-MAGIC is a 4-year FET Proactive project (emerging paradigms and communities) that sought for a practical Rechargeable Magnesium Batteries (RMB) as a cutting-edge high-risk / high-reward research and innovation that aim to demonstrate a new technological paradigm within the scope of Disruptive micro-energy and storage technologies (H2020-FETPROACT-2018-01).
E-MAGIC claims also to reinforce the Mg-based Battery Community.
