The Batteries European Partnership Association (BEPA) is organising a webinar, titled “’Upscaling Innovation across the European Battery Value Chain” on 18 April, starting with 15:00 Brussels time.

The battery value chain is a complex system with many different parts that require different knowledge, resources and infrastructure to function. However, all these parts are interconnected and need to work together. In Europe, there is no organisation whose activities cover all the different parts of the battery value chain, making the transition from the laboratory to the market more difficult. This is all the more accurate as the diversity of battery chemistry and technologies continues to grow.

How best to scale up the production of a new battery technology in a value chain where all parts are interdependent?
