The vision for BATTERY 2030+ is to invent the batteries of the future, providing European industry with disruptive technologies and a competitive edge across the full value chain, that will enable Europe to take the lead in battery science and technology.

This newsletter gives you an update on what's going on within the initiative.
Enjoy your reading!


A moment with Kristina Edström,
Coordinator of BATTERY 2030+

Thank you for supporting the BATTERY 2030+ initiative and being a part of our battery community! You are now over 1 200 stakeholders that have endorsed the initiative and the network keeps growing.

A lot of things have happened since the last newsletter. Members of the BATTERY 2030+ consortium have attended a large number of battery related events in Europe and other parts of the world. It is positive to see that so many contacts between the industry and academia are being created, as well as national, regional and European networks. This will support the research and competence building as well as the battery industry in Europe.

The BATTERY 2030+ consortium have recently completed the second draft of the research roadmap, after receiving valuable feedback during the written consultation process. The roadmap was discussed by over 200 stakeholders in Brussels on 20 November, and many new ideas were raised. Your input is essential, and it is not too late to contribute with thoughts and ideas, especially about new research areas. We are currently formulating research and innovation actions for future calls, primarily on long term, but more short term ideas are also welcome.

Going forward we continue our collaboration with other European initiatives, such as Batteries Europe and the European Battery Alliance. In addition, we are currently preparing for the next three-year Coordination and Support Action. We also continue to be present on national and European levels to spread knowledge about the BATTERY 2030+ initiative.
