The Alliance for Batteries Technology, Training and Skills (ALBATTS) is a European project with a total budget of 4 million EUR. It is funded by the Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliances Programme.
The objective of the project is to contribute to the electrification of transport and green energy in Europe by designing a blueprint for competences and training schemes of the future, in the battery and electromobility sector. Additionally, making Europe a competitive player in the battery ecosystem is a significant driver.
ALBATTS focuses on identifying and developing relevant competences and skills to empower European industry with a high-skilled workforce and expertise in batteries development and production.
The 4-year project is striving to form a consortium around Europe to enable the availability of a skilled workforce through Vocational Education Training and Universities.
Swedish Skellefteå municipality is coordinating 20 European partners from 10 countries. Both industry and education sectors are represented. Additionally, the project’s stakeholders are an important asset in achieving in the goals of ALBATTS.
ALBATTS encompasses Stationary and Industrial battery Applications, and Intelligence in Mobile Battery Applications, including the process of defining new job roles and curriculums.
Merinova Technology Centre as a project partner leads the Work Package 4 (WP4) that focuses on the sub-sector of the Intelligence in Stationary and Industrial Battery Applications (ISIBA).
