Part of the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Work Programme 2018-20, funding is available to network and coordinate the efforts of the European academic and industrial research and innovation communities from multiple disciplines towards developing a roadmap for long term research into radically new technologies for electrochemical energy storage. This area is critical for the development of a world-class European industry and for addressing the needs of many sectors, including e-mobility and renewable energy storage.

Proposals should aim at networking and coordinating the efforts of the relevant stakeholders, notably academia, RTOs and industry and preparing a long-term research roadmap for radically new electrochemical energy storage technologies, devices and smart systems. This topic is open to legal entities established in EU Member States, associated countries and others where specified in the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020.

The European Commission anticipates that proposals requesting up to €500,000 and for a duration of 12 months would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. However, applications requesting other amounts or for a different duration will be considered.

The deadline for submissions is 6 November 2018.
