Two Calls will be covered in the scope of the webinar. More details on each of the Calls are below:
NEW CROSS-CUTTING CALL: BUILDING A LOW-CARBON, CLIMATE RESILIENT FUTURE: NEXT-GENERATION BATTERIES (H2020-LC-BAT-2019-2020)
The topics contained within this Call cover a spectrum of activities in the field of electric batteries technology: short term research for advanced Li-ion electrochemistry and production processes, short to medium term research for solid-state electrochemistry, modelling tools, new materials for stationary electric batteries, hybridisation of battery systems, next generation batteries for stationary energy storage, next generation and validation of battery packs and battery management systems, networking of pilot lines and skills development and training.
In 2019, a share of €114 million will be available to fund projects in the seven topics of the Call. The application period will start on 24th January 2019 and the deadline for applications is the 25th April 2019. For more information on the call, click here.
LC-BAT-1-2019 Strongly improved, highly performant and safe all solid state batteries for electric vehicles
LC-BAT-2-2019 Strengthening EU materials technologies for non-automotive battery storage
LC-BAT-3-2019 Modelling and simulation for Redox Flow Battery development
LC-BAT-4-2019 Advanced Redox Flow Batteries for stationary energy storage

NEW CROSS-CUTTING CALL: A LARGE-SCALE RESEARCH INITIATIVE ON FUTURE BATTERY TECHNOLOGIES (H2020-BATFLAG-2020)
At the dawn of a new, connected, green era – represented by autonomous vehicles, smart cities, smart grids based on renewable energy sources, drone aircrafts, robotic devices, – reliable and safe batteries with ultra-high performance are becoming essential. Novel cross disciplinary approaches empowered by digital technologies can accelerate research on the next generations of smart, safe and high-performing batteries. They will provide Europe with a competitive advantage in the fast growing market of electro-chemical energy storage and will be key for the development of a world-class European industry capable of addressing the needs of many sectors, including e-mobility and renewable energy storage.
In 2020, a share of €47 million will be available to fund projects in five topics of the Call. The application period will start on 9th July 2019 and the deadline for applications is the 14th January 2020. This Call kick-starts the support to a large scale research initiative on Future Battery Technologies. More information on the Call will be published soon.
