Green materials for Batteries in Horizon 2020

Munich. On 19 February 2020, the Bavarian Research Alliance and Innovation Centre Denmark co-host the International Workshop “Green materials for batteries in <link>Horizon 2020” in Munich. 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. The workshop is a follow-up event of the <link https: www.bayfor.org aktuelles veranstaltungen detail events show brokerage-event-fuer-interregionale-projektzusammenarbeit-im-themenbereich-lithium-ionen-akkumulatoren.html>"Brokerage Event für interregionale Projektzusammenarbeit im Themenbereich Lithium-Ionen-Akkumulatoren" which took place on 26 June 2019.


The transition to climate neutrality, including through clean and low emission mobility, will bring significant opportunities for economic growth, job creation and technological development in Europe. Demand for batteries is expected to grow very rapidly in the coming years. Forward-looking research, development and innovation policies will have a key role to enable Europe and its Member States to make the most of this transition. Therefore, the European Commission supports the development of new materials and cell production processes for batteries of the next generation to make Europe an important battery location worldwide:
