The Batteries European Partnership Association  is organising its fourth General Assembly on Tuesday, 26 April, in a hybrid gathering that will be held in Brussels and online. Over 170 members are expected to attend, including approximately 60 in-person participants and more than 110 attendees connecting online.

After two years of COVID-19 stay-at-home measures, members of BEPA’s governing bodies, the Executive board and Association Delegation, seized the opportunity to meet face-to-face and jointly review various topics, such as

The European Commission will also highlight the importance of the Batt4EU (Batteries for Europe) Partnership, established under Horizon Europe, which gathers the European Commission and battery stakeholders from the European Research community to achieve a competitive and sustainable, European industrial value-chain. Members will get updated on the recommendations for the battery R&I topics for the Batt4EU Horizon Europe’s Work Programme 2023-24, based on 3 focus areas and 2 cross-cutting issues that cover the entire battery industry’s value chain. Furthermore, the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, will present the new collaboration agreement between the JRC, BEPA and the 2Zero Partnership for clean road transport.

After the general proceedings, a workshop on the battery passport will offer members information on what the digital representation and regulatory framework entail, as well as further details related to the ongoing initiatives. The battery passport workshop will also provide examples on how research and innovation activities can help tackle some of the challenges faced by the digital platform and contribute to its success.

Over the past year, BEPA has continued to grow, and now counts over 185 associate, industry and research members, with even more members expected to be announced, as a result of this fourth General Assembly.

The first BEPA Matchmaking event of 2022 for the 2022 Batt4EU Horizon Europe calls turned out a success!

More than 120 attendees joined the annual online matchmaking event to get an overview of the Horizon Europe calls on batteries which will be opening on 28 April 2022.

While Philippe Jacque, BEPA Secretary General, gave a short overview of the Batt4EU Partnership, and presented the results of the 2021 round of calls, as well as the calls for 2022, BEPA Executive Board members, Franz Geyer and Simon Perraud, highlighted the different calls and the specific call conditions in detail.

The gist of the event was, however, the two pitching sessions dedicated to members and (members of) some of BEPA’s affiliated associations who presented their project ideas to scout for collaborations among listeners.

Pitches continued after the coffee break with additional project ideas!

With more than 300 people registered and over 66 meetings already scheduled, the matchmaking platform is successfully encouraging connections among battery stakeholders to find the perfect match for the 2022 Batt4EU Horizon Europe calls.

Until May 1st, registrations will remain open on the matchmaking platform in order to book 1-on-1 talks with other entities or post requests for projects and partners on the marketplace. Register here: BEPA MATCHMAKING

BEPA president, Michael Lippert, made the official closing remarks showing great enthusiasm in seeing the interest gathered from the entire battery value chain.

The SLIDES from the event are now available!




On Thursday, 31 March, from 13:30 to 17:00, BEPA organises an online match-making event to create collaborations for the Horizon Europe battery calls, and present the 2022 Batt4EU calls that will be open for submission starting from 28 April 2022.
