Batteries experts identify short-term research & innovation priorities
The Batteries Europe Technology & Innovation Platform has published its vision on short-term research and innovation priorities for the European battery sector. The 200-page document is the result of input from battery experts from organisations along the whole value chain coming from industry and the research community all over Europe. It will feed into preparation for the nascent Batteries Partnership under the Horizon Europe research programme and should also facilitate the priorities and initiatives of Member States.
The priority topics identified range from sustainable processing of battery raw materials to advanced methods of sorting and recycling of battery materials, proceeding with next generation batteries for e-mobility and stationary storage from advanced materials. Manufacturing techniques and batteries integration in key user applications are also highlighted.
