This section gives details on the results and expected impact the project wants to achieve. These can be divided into two types:


Short term impact:

  • Analysis of the overall battery sector on its strengths and weaknesses. Including its interconnections with individual sub-sectors (stationary and other industrial battery applications, mobile battery applications); the future direction of the sector viewed through the evolution of technology; future skills needs, recycling and second use.


  • Involving all levels of stakeholders in the sector, along the value chain (raw materials and processing, cell components and manufacturing, battery and battery pack manufacturing, recycling and second use - and all that horizontally supported in each step by research and development).


  • Training preparations based on the needs of the sector - including skills needs and needs of the methods used for the trainings.


  • Creation of knowledge and skills to start new VET and high degree programs within the sector, to supply the industry with skilled workforce.


  • Finally, development of knowledge and skills from VET providers' staff, by working together with companies and universities.



Long term impact:

  • The project will allow the development of new training programmes for the workforce already working in the battery sector, as well as to newcomers.


  • Integration of new curricula and qualifications in the national frameworks.


  • The increased investment in this sector will impact the expected number of new students.


  • Improvement of the image, status and attractiveness of VET schools participating.


  • The project will create a sustainable partnership in this emerging economic sector.


  • Finally, enabling EU-wide recognition of specific skills/job role achievements in the sectoral employment market in member countries. This will have direct impact on possible mobility of workers/future workers in the sector. Harmonisation of job role/skills definitions on EU level, under umbrella for recognition.
