The Batteries’ Skills Alliance

The European Commission has selected, under the ERASMUS+ Sector Skills Alliances 2019, the ALBATTS project as the only consortium, in Europe, supporting the transition to the electrification of transport and to green energy, with respect to the skills and education needed in the battery value chain.

ALBATTS – a new European project – will support close collaborations between industrial and educational stakeholders, in the emerging Batteries for the Electro-mobility ecosystem.

By bringing together 20 organisations from 11 European countries, ALBATTS aims to establish a direction regarding competence demand and supply, covering the whole life cycle of the battery value chain, from cell production to battery systems in stationary and mobile applications. Together, relevant stakeholders will map the current technology state-of-play and design a roadmap for the synchronisation of skills demand, by identifying and matching the new competences’ needs with the supply of education and training services.

The main drive is to make Europe a competitive player in the battery ecosystem, by empowering European industry with a high-skilled workforce and expertise in batteries development and production.
