Batteries prize

Prize for innovative batteries for eVehicles

The EU is set to award €10 million for a fully functional prototype of high-performing, sustainable battery for electric vehicles. The challenge is to develop a safe and sustainable battery through the development of new materials and chemistries that are low cost and easily available in Europe.

Solutions must provide the same or better performance than equivalent vehicles with internal combustion engines. 

The competition will foster knowledge, innovation and competitiveness in e-vehicle/battery technologies while contributing to the decarbonisation of Europe to the benefit of the entire EU and its citizens.

The deadline for applications is 17th December 2020, with the prize expected to be awarded in the fourth quarter of 2021. Read more here
