The BATT4EU Partnership has built a strong collaboration with the BATTERY 2030+ initiative (Coordination and Support Action funded under the Horizon 2020 programme) which is the large-scale and long-term European research initiative with the vision of inventing the sustainable batteries of the future, providing European industry with disruptive technologies and a competitive edge throughout the battery value chain.
A work programme of topics on which the JRC can provide scientific inputs has been agreed and yearly meetings are organised so the JRC can present their results. The objective of this collaboration is thus to identify synergies between the JRC’s work and some key R&I topics that are in the scope of the BATT4EU Partnership, so the JRC can provide relevant data, studies and inputs which will feed the work of BEPA (within its Technical Working Groups).
A collaboration agreement has been signed between the JRC, BEPA and the 2ZERO partnership to enable information sharing and project result dissemination. The collaboration agreement defines 8 activities for collaboration related to battery safety, reliability and sustainability. The three parties meet yearly to discuss project results and updates, and may host workshops on defined topics.
Innovation Communities (KICs) is part of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology which aim to strengthen cooperation among businesses (including SMEs), higher education institutions and research organisations, to form dynamic pan-European partnerships, and create favourable environments for creative thought processes and innovations to flourish.
BATT4EU will foresee cooperation with these initiatives, especially to support the scale up and exploitation of the battery related project results and the uptake of results from projects into products.
In this perspective, BATT4EU will collaborate:
The initiative (led by Castile and Leon, Slovenia and Andalusia) gathers 8 European regions and aims at developing joint R&D&I projects on topics of advanced materials, their characterisation, durability suitable for extreme working conditions with the goal to deploy them in the field batteries.
The focus of the platform is mainly battery as electro-chemical products with the final goal of enabling electro-mobility and enhancing the capacity and performance of stationary energy storage.
