BEST - Batteries Europe Secretariat

A new secretariat to energise Batteries Europe

Contact person

The European technology and innovation platform (ETIP) Batteries Europe is a one-stop shop for battery related R&I preparing KPI values and targets, Technology Roadmaps, and white papers relating to all aspects of battery research. Along with the Batteries European Partner Association (BEPA) we prepare the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for Europe on Battery technology. The EU-funded BEST project has established a secretariat to boost the role of Batteries Europe by gathering academia, industry and research expertise.

The BEST team consolidates the Battery R&I community and supports the existing platform by forging synergies and consolidating the workflow among the initiatives.


BEST consortium engages its experts working groups industry stakeholders, academia, policy makers, researchers and citizens from all the value chain, especially broadening involvement on underrepresented domains and countries. BEST contributes to gain synergies among battery R&I stakeholders’ landscape, consolidate the workflow among the initiatives, facilitate free and inclusive access to information, strength industry-research collaboration to push technology developments to reduce time to market of new solutions, reinforce European talent attraction capacity and provide fact-based orientations to policy makers.

The Secretariat will gather expertise to develop Strategic R&I agenda, design updated roadmaps, establish KPIs per application (transport, stationary, portable, etc.) to nurture the SET Plan, contribute to standards and reporting methodologies harmonization, promote education on battery fields and rise social awareness. The Secretariat will organize workshops per objectives, complemented with experts’ interviews, discussion forums, scientific papers review, etc. to confront current state of the art with future trends, considering international tendencies.

BEST is formed by 11 partners and 4 affiliated entities, led by Innonergy. The partners are promoters of main European initiatives related to batteries that has facilitated the establishment of collaboration flows to bring Batteries Europe Platform to next stage.
