Horizon 2020 Batteries Information and Consortia Building Event: Presentations now available

Posted on: 14/11/2019

On the 7th of November, KTN and Innovate UK hosted a workshop on forthcoming Horizon 2020 Batteries related Calls: these are open until April 2020.

“Electric batteries are currently seen as important technological enablers to drive the transition towards a de-carbonised society, by integration of renewable and clean energy sources (such as wind energy and photovoltaics) in the electricity grid, and, in particular, by electrification of transport. Energy storage is the common denominator: it includes both electro-mobility and stationary applications despite the different constraints applying to each of these applications in real life.” Extract from H2020 Cross-Cutting Work Programme.


The workshop gave an overview of the forthcoming Horizon 2020 Battery related Calls representing a budget of around €337.5million. Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s Research and Innovation Programme.


KTN hosted this event on behalf of Innovate UK and was delivered by Viola Hay, Knowledge Transfer Manager РEuropean Programmes, KTN, Stephen Alexander, National Contact Point for Legal and Financial Issues, Innovate UK, Johan Blondelle, DG Research, European Commission, Anna Wise, Innovate UK, Thore Sekkenes, European Battery Alliance Programme Director, InnoEnergy, Ilka von Dalwigk, Policy Manager, InnoEnergy, Sheena Hindocha, Knowledge Transfer Manager РMaterials Chemistry, KTN, Helen Fairclough, Horizon 2020 NCP Energy, Innovate UK.
