The main objective of the partnership is to develop joint R&D&I projects on topics of advanced materials, their characterisation, durability, suitable for extreme working conditions with the goal to deploy them in the field of batteries. Batteries here are electro-chemical products with the final goal of enabling electro-mobility and enhancing the capacity and performance of stationary energy storage.
The Advanced Materials for Batteries Partnership (AMBP) defines its key objectives in the following terms:
- Advanced materials as one of Key Enabling Technologies identified as a priority for EU industrial policy;
- Secure access to raw materials and support to battery manufacturing in order to strengthen industrial leadership through joint EU research and innovation support;
- Bridging the gap between research and industry application in the field of advanced materials for batteries for electromobility and stationary energy storage; and
- Through the joint innovation eco-systems, contributing to innovation results that enable reduced costs for advanced materials and hence increased development, deployment and adoption of clean energy and clean mobility technologies.
The main areas of work of the partnership have been identified as:
- Contributing to the modernisation of industry in the field of advanced materials for clean energy specialising in materials for electromobility and stationary energy storage;
- Accelerating the transition of innovative advanced materials from the lab to the market;
- Developing supporting regional innovation ecosystems by setting up (trans)regional innovation hubs and ecosystems as catalysts for innovative startups;
- Reinforcing innovation interactions within this ecosystem between industry, SMEs, RTOs and universities to create joint benefits by building on complementarities and by fostering synergies; and
- Supporting the manufacturing processes at scale and creation of full competitive value chains in Europe.
