Brokerage Event for Interregional Collaborative Projects on Li-ion Batteries

Logo Batterie Event

Brussels. The organisers of the Brokerage Event for inter-regional collaborative projects on li-ion batteries generation 3b, generation 4 and recycling invite stakeholders from around 26 European regions to come together on 26th June 2019 and share their expertise in order to identify joint projects on materials for lithium-ion batteries. On behalf of the European Commission, the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) is co-organising the event together with EMIRI and N-ABLE.

Stakeholders from industry and academia from around 26 European regions are invited to contribute to the development of RDI projects relating to the EU’s smart specialisation strategy on the thematic platform “Advanced materials for batteries”. Projects should address transregional cooperation on a high technology readiness level under three joint priority themes: materials on generation 4 (Pilot 1), recycling processes of batteries (Pilot 3) and materials on generation 3b (Pilot 6).

The Brokerage Event will focus on identifying how entrepreneurs and scientists from the respective regions can collaborate in the three joint priority themes. Another aim is the development of a joint approach for the initiation of trans-regional projects in order to pool expertise and create interregional synergies.
