Governance

The BATTERY 2030+ initiative is coordinated by the CSA project BATTERY 2030PLUS. The BATTERY 2030+ initiative also includes a collaboration board made up of the coordinators of the six BATTERY 2030+ research projects. In addition, the BATTERY 2030+ has strong links to other European battery initiatives such as the European Technology Innovation Platform (ETIP) Batteries Europe and a continuous dialogue with the national stakeholders across Europe. 

The general assembly and executive board of the coordinating projects

The ultimate decision-making body of the coordinating BATTERY 2030PLUS consortium is the General Assembly, which is composed of the Project Coordinator, the Deputy Project Coordinator and representatives from each partner of the BATTERY 2030PLUS consortium.

The Executive Board is the supervisory body responsible for the proper execution and implementation of the decisions of the General Assembly and for monitoring the effective and efficient implementation of the project. The Executive Board is composed of the Project Coordinator (chair of the Executive Board), the Deputy Coordinator, the Project Manager and the work package leaders of the BATTERY 2030PLUS CSA project as well as thematic leaders for the three research themes described in the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap.

The collaboration board

The Collaboration Board is composed of the coordinators of the BATTERY 2030+ projects  and is chaired by Kristina Edström coordinator of the BATTERY 2030PLUS CSA project. The Collaboration Board will ensure efficient coordination of the implementation of actions and monitoring of progress. The Collaboration Board will make decision on common publications and activities. The collaboration is regulated in a Collaboration Agreement between all projects constituting the BATTERY 2030+ initiative.

The reference groups

The reference groups play the role of an ecosystem for providing inputs for the initiative. In essence the reference groups provides feedback in order to help align the BATTERY 2030+ initiative results and the expectations of the different communities (research community, industrials, Member State, Public). Additionally, the reference groups contribute to reaching a considerable visibility of the initiative results at the European level.

There are three main reference groups 1) Supporting Organisations 2) An International Scientific Advisory Board and 3) the individuals that have endorsed the initiative.

Supporting Organisations, have actively given their support to the vision, aims and goals of the initiative and the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap. These organisations give input to the activities in the initiative and are part of the European eco-system that can ensure uptake of new knowledge and technologies.

The Scientific Advisory Board, which is under formation will be able to give valuable scientific input on the research directions and goals in the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap as well as contribute to its evolvement.

The individuals that have endorsed the initiative have been consulted in the process of formulating the current version of the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap and is an important group representing a wide range of battery stakeholders across Europe.
