Large-scale European initiative for battery research starts up
The European research initiative BATTERY 2030+ is now getting going. The ambition is to make Europe a world-leader in the development and production of the batteries of the future. These batteries need to store more energy, have a longer life, and be safer and more environmentally friendly than today’s batteries in order to facilitate the transition to a more climate-neutral society. The project is led from Uppsala University.
“We're finally up and running! This is an important long-term research investment in the field of batteries that will strengthen Europe's research position and contribute to having an industry that can manufacture the batteries of the future,” says Professor Kristina Edström, Uppsala University, who is the coordinator of BATTERY 2030+.
