Next-Generation batteries

INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.

The Building a Low-Carbon, Climate Resilient Future: Next-Generation Batteries call for proposals brings together research and innovation efforts on the next generations of batteries from various parts of Horizon 2020, including both transport and energy research.
