Launch of the Battery2030+ Roadmap

  • March 25, 2020

VUB has been highly involved in the long-term roadmap of the European large scale research initiative BATTERY 2030+ which was launched on March 24. This roadmap outlines actions needed to invent the sustainable batteries of the future.

VUB-researchers Dr Maitane Berecibar and Dr Dries Van Laethem have been involved as main contributors in the following topics: Integration of smart functionalities on Sensing and Self-Healing, and Manufacturability.

Overview of the roadmap:

The roadmap suggests research actions to radically transform the way we discover, develop, and design ultra-high-performance, durable, safe, sustainable, and affordable batteries for use in real applications. The purpose is to make a collective European research effort to support the urgent need to establish European battery cell manufacturing.

The three themes are:

I) Accelerated discovery of battery interfaces and materials

  • Battery interface genome (BIG)
  • Materials acceleration platform (MAP)

II) Integration of smart functionalitites

  • Sensing
  • Self-healing

III) Cross-cutting areas

  • Manufacturability 
  • Recyclability
