DESTINY will be fund
The DESTINY consortium is authorized to continue the development of its project.
On February 3, 2020, the European Commission gave the green light to the DESTINY project supported by the RS2E. The European consortium coordinated by Christian Masquelier, professor at the Picardie-Jules Verne University, is made up of 20 universities, 6 research centers, two research networks (RS2E and ALISTORE-ERI), 3 large-scale facilities, 1 French regional council and 8 companies.
The DESTINY project will now be able to set up a coherent financing scheme in order to benefit from European funds within the framework of the Horizon 2020 program.
DESTINY, which will last 5 years, aims to train 50 doctoral students in research in the field of batteries. The aim is to prepare young researchers for the disruptive technologies that the European Union wishes to develop in Europe by encouraging initiatives such as Battery 2030+.
