Green materials for Batteries in Horizon 2020

The EU Commission has recently approved 3.2 billion euros public support for a pan-European research and innovation project in all segments of the battery value chain. This EU initiative brings new funding opportunities for European researchers specialized in battery technologies.

Therefore, the Bavarian Research Alliance and Innovation Centre Denmark would like to invite you to join the International Workshop "Green materials for Batteries in Horizon 2020" which they will co-host in Munich on 19 February 2020. 

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry from different regions and countries in Europe to develop joint proposals within Horizon 2020 Industrial Leadership calls with a special focus on battery technologies. This event specifically targets researchers who have a concrete project idea for the open topics and who are searching for international project partners.

During our workshop, you will have the opportunity:

·         to meet with other researchers from academia and industry working on batteries;

·         to hold a short presentation (pitch talk of max. 5 minutes) on your institution, your research areas, the partners you are seeking and especially your project idea and the topic(s) you would like to address;

·         to network with other participants, match on specific topics and initiate joint projects on the following topics related to batteries:

o    LC-BAT-8-2020: Next-generation batteries for stationary energy storage

o    LC-BAT-9-2020: Hybridisation of battery systems for stationary energy storage

o    LC-BAT-10-2020: Next generation and realisation of battery packs for BEV and PHEV

o    LC-BAT-11-2020: Reducing the cost of large batteries for waterborne transport


For further information on the specific calls, please click on the links above. The deadline for submission of proposals under the above-mentioned topics is 21 April 2020.

Our workshop is supported by the Enterprise Europe Network, Europe's largest advisory network for SMEs.
