Future R&I actions

BATTERY 2030+ roadmap presents the research directions needed to invent the sustainable batteries of the future and for providing new tools for how Europe discover and develops batteries. At the end the first year of the initiative the consortium put forward new suggestions for R&I actions focusing on the medium-term goals outlined in the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap. The topics below was formulated by the BATTERY 2030+ core-group after consultation with European stakeholders

The call topics “Development of smart digital twin…” and “Development of direct recycling concepts…” come from the cross-cutting research areas on Manufacturability and Recyclability identified in the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap.

The call topic “Furthering the development of a materials acceleration platform…” can be seen as the follow-up of the ramp-up phase on materials acceleration platform which will be funded under LC-BAT-12-2020.

The call topic “Embedding smart functionalities into cells” can be seen as the follow-up of the ramp-up phase on smart functionalities which will be funded under LC-BAT-13 and LC-BAT-14-2020.

The call topic “Visualizing electrons” is a frontier research topic which will trigger significant scientific progress in the field of materials characterization, with a long-term impact in several technology fields including batteries.

Suggestions for call topics from the BATTERY 2030+ community

  • Development of a smart digital twin for the design and manufacturing process of next-generation battery cells
  • Development of direct recycling concepts for battery technologies
  • Furthering the development of a materials acceleration platform for sustainable batteries
  • Embedding smart functionalities into cells
  • Visualizing electrons
