1st Virtual Stakeholder Webinar

Reinventing the way we invent the batteries of the future! 


The Battery Interface Genome – Materials Acceleration Platform (BIG-MAP) project is part of the large-scale and long-term European research initiative BATTERY 2030+. Here, we propose a radical paradigm shift in battery innovation, which will lead to a dramatic speed-up in the battery discovery and innovation time; reaching a 5-10 fold increase relative to the current rate of discovery within the next 5-10 years. BIG-MAP relies on the development of a unique R&D infrastructure and accelerated methodology that unites and integrates insights from leading experts, competences and data across the entire battery (discovery) value chain with Artificial Intelligence (AI), High Performance Computing (HPC), large-scale and high-throughput characterization and autonomous synthesis robotics. 

In short, BIG-MAP aims to reinvent the way we invent batteries and to develop core modules and Key Demonstrators of a Materials Acceleration Platform specifically designed for accelerated discovery of battery materials and interfaces.

During this 1st online stakeholder webinar, you will discover the BIG-MAP project ambition, its challenges and the motivations and expectations from partners of different industries involved in the project. More importantly, you will also be given a chance to bring your contribution by applying to open calls for stakeholder initiatives, aiming at:

  1. Development of specific APIs or interfaces between the BIG-MAP infrastructure and one of the LC-BAT-13/14/15-2020 projects
  2. Development of APIs/interfaces to software, techniques or equipment widely used in the battery community
  3. Development of apps for autonomous analysis of BIG-MAP data
  4. Apply the BIG-MAP infrastructure to further the develop of novel battery chemistries

When: 16th of March 4:30 - 6:00 pm
