A moment with Kristina Edström,
Director of BATTERY 2030+

Thank you for supporting the BATTERY 2030+ initiative and being a part of our battery community! You are now over 1,300 stakeholders that have endorsed the initiative and the network keeps growing. Together, we are becoming a strong community in Europe that can make a difference and push the frontiers of battery research and innovation forward.

These are exciting times for the battery research community with a lot of things going on. In the end of last year, the European Commission presented its Green Deal, where battery research and innovation have a crucial part in contributing to reaching the goal of a climate neutral society by 2050.

When it comes to BATTERY 2030+, we responded to the LC-BAT-15-2020 topic to receive support to continue the development of the initiative for an additional three years. We also hope to grow the BATTERY 2030+ family with a number of collaborative research projects addressing the identified research areas in the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap. The research areas that will kick-start the implementation of the roadmap is the materials acceleration platform BIG-MAP and the introduction of smart functionalities, such as self-healing and sensing. Manufacturability and recyclability will be cross-cutting topics that need to be considered early on in the discovery process.

The fine-tuning of the long-term research roadmap is soon completed. Some of the writing-group leaders met in Brussels on 5 February to discuss the content and to make the document ready to be presented to the European Commission. You’ll find the final version of the document on our website in the beginning of March.

We are also involved in other European initiatives, such as Batteries Europe and the European Battery Alliance, and are present on national and European levels to spread knowledge about the BATTERY 2030+ initiative and the need for a long-term research approach building a knowledge foundation for the present and the future.

Women in Battery Research

February 11 was the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. We took the opportunity to ask some of the researchers within the BATTERY 2030+ consortium about how they got into science and what they think needs to be done to get more women into the field of battery research. Read more...
