The EIC prize for Innovative Batteries for eVehicles has been launched

The challenge is to develop a safe and sustainable battery for electric-vehicles through the development of new materials and chemistries making use of abundant, sustainable low cost materials, which are easily available in Europe.  

This prize will:

  • foster knowledge, innovation and competitiveness in e-vehicle battery/ energy storage technologies
  • enhance the European manufacturing base for e-vehicle batteries
  • strengthen the European Industrial value chain (e.g. through exploitation or synergies with existing European industrial infrastructures)
  • strengthen European value added in the supply and knowledge of advanced materials and chemistries for batteries
  • encourage electro-mobility, opening up new markets and incentivising technological innovations
  • enhance employment prospects along the entire electro-mobility value chain
  • contribute to a significant drop in CO2 and NOx emissions in line with global environmental policies

Prize value: €10 million
