The EU supports many projects that advance batteries technologies to benefit consumers and industries. Following the launch of the European Batteries Alliance in October 2017, additional calls for proposals on batteries were published to further boost development.
The below projects, ordered per call title, stem from a cross-cutting call for proposals from 2019 and have been funded within the Horizon 2020 programme. The proposals from 2020 will soon be added.
The full overview of calls of proposals for batteries is available in the section on cross-cutting activities from the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020.
