Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda

The vision

The vision of BATT4EU is to establish in Europe by 2030 world’s best innovation ecosystem to boost a competitive, sustainable and circular European battery value chain and to drive the transformation towards a carbon-neutral society. It will do so by preparing and equipping Europe to commercialise the next-generation battery technologies by 2030, which will enable the rollout of zero-emission mobility and renewable energy storage.

To achieve this objective and the goals set up by the European Commission, BATT4EU has developed a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), published in 2021.

The current SRIA details six key R&I areas that need to be addressed in order to improve the competitiveness and sustainability of the European battery sector:

  • R&I Area 1: Raw materials and Recycling
  • R&I Area 2: Advanced materials and manufacturing
  • R&I Area 3: Battery end-uses and applications
  • R&I Area 4 – Cross-cutting: Safety
  • R&I Area 5 – Cross-cutting: Sustainability
  • R&I Area 6 – Cross-cutting: Coordination.

To keep up with the fast paced innovation in the battery industry, this strategic document is currently being updated in close collaboration with the ETIP Batteries Europe, and will be published again in 2023. BEPA members can get involved in this update by joining the working groups.
