EC launches €10M EIC Horizon Prize for innovative batteries for #EVs; EU Battery Alliance progressing https://t.co/AgQzRTQthS

The Prize aims to tackle the challenge of the slow uptake of zero emission electric vehicles so far, mainly due to the limitations of existing batteries, which are expensive and have limited ranges and long recharging times. This prize will boost the use of electric vehicles. This is good for air quality and health of people living in cities. It will also help Europe to enhance its battery manufacturing capabilities and maintain its leading position in scientific innovation. The Prize will contribute to the objectives of the Commission’s Clean Mobility Package, which aims to reduce CO2 emissions, boost deployment of clean vehicles and foster an integrated industrial policy on batteries that will be invented and produced in the EU. To ensure such competitive, independent and innovative battery manufacturing the Commission has initiated an EU battery alliance bringing togeth...
