Almost seven months in since the Batteries European Partnership Association kick-started its Research and Innovation (R&I) mission to support the EU net-zero roadmap, more than 178 private stakeholders have joined the initiative.
During the past summer months of July and August, 9 new members joined BEPA, moved by the mutual interest in building a competitive and sustainable European battery value chain.
We give our warmest welcome to our new members and look forward to a successful journey to boost the European R&I together:
During the past few months, BEPA Technical Working Groups (TWG) have already made their first steps towards establishing R&I topics for the next Horizon Europe Work Programme 2023-2024. Bringing together industry, research and other organisations’ experts from specific R&I areas, BEPA’s TWGs’ members discuss the impending R&I priorities that need to be addressed in the coming years in Horizon Europe.
With the summer days now drawing to a close and the last calendar page turned to September, we are ushered in the last quarter of the year, facing the array of possibilities still around us before 2021 winds down.
TWGs will start coordinating meetings from September 2021, so do not hesitate to join BEPA if you would like to provide your recommendations for future battery R&I – there is still some time left!
