Interregional Workshop on Green Materials & Production for Batteries under Horizon Europe and other EU funding schemes


On 11 May 2022, the Bavarian Research Alliance organises together with Innovation Centre Denmark and Wallonie-Bruxelles International (WBI)/NCP Wallonie the online Interregional Workshop “Green materials & Production for Batteries under Horizon Europe and other EU funding schemes”.
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 calls with a special focus on battery technologies.This event specifically targets researchers who have a concrete project idea for the open topics listed on this page and who are searching for international project partners.

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 by funds the research and development of the whole value chain of batteries, e.g. materials, cell design and production processes for batteries of the next generation to make Europe an important battery location worldwide.
This brings interesting funding opportunities for European researchers specialized in battery technologies.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to join our online workshop, where you will have the opportunity:

  • to meet with other researchers from academia and industry working on batteries;
  • to hold a short presentation (pitch talk of max. 4 minutes) on your project idea,
    the topic(s) you would like to address and the partners you are looking for;
  • to network with other participants, match on specific topics and initiate joint proposals/projects related to (e.g.):

1. the following Horizon Europe topics related to batteries (Deadline for proposal submission on 6 September 2022):

2. Battery-related topics in the M-ERA.NET call (Deadline for proposal submission on 15 June 2022):

  • Materials for energy
  • Innovative surfaces, coatings and interfaces
  • High performance composites
  • Functional materials
  • New strategies for advanced material-based technologies for health applications
  • Materials for electronics
