Innovation projects

Innovation is at the core of all betteries products. To further strengthen our innovation roadmap and cooperation network, we actively participate in different publicly funded projects.

The Horizon Europe framework program is key in enabling the scaling up of scientific results. Other national programs are also supporting the technology transfer by fostering cooperation between universities & research institutions and companies.

Participating in these types of projects is strategic for betteries as it helps us develop and test new technology as well as it provides us the opportunity to integrate new innovative elements developed by our project partners.

Since our foundation in 2018, we have been involved in the below listed innovation projects. If you are looking for a partner for your upcoming project, please contact us at


Project title: A next-generation automated and connected process for increased safety, efficiency, and sustainability of Li-ion BATTEry REVERSE logistics

Partners: 11 partners from 6 countries

betteries’ contribution: Industrial partner supporting the definition of research and market needs, as well as testing and validating approaches and ideas

Funding: This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Programme under grant agreement n°101103706.

Project status: ongoing, timeline: May 2023 – October 2026 


BatteReverse is working towards building the next generation of battery reverse logistics. It is expected that 1.7 million tonnes of batteries will have reached their end of life by 2030. We are developing necessary technologies, processes, and partnerships to give EV batteries a second life. Through a set of activities, we are enhancing efficiency and safety, demonstrate innovative reverse logistics pilots, and empower the European circularity.

As part of the project, we have created a community where you can engage and interact with experts, enthusiasts, and thought leaders on issues, challenges, and benefits of the diverse aspects of battery reverse logistics.

SOLUTIONSplus brings together cities, industry, research, implementing organisations and finance partners and establishes a global platform for shared, public and commercial e-mobility solutions to kick start the transition towards low-carbon urban mobility. The project encompasses city level demonstrations to test different types of innovative and integrated e-mobility solutions, complemented by a comprehensive toolbox, capacity development and replication activities. Demonstration actions are being launched in Hanoi (Vietnam), Pasig (Philippines), Lalitpur/Kathmandu (Nepal), Kigali (Rwanda), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Quito (Ecuador), Montevideo (Uruguay), Madrid (Spain), Nanjing (China) and Hamburg (Germany).

betteries has supported the project as an external technology provider to test and validate different e-mobility solutions in Asia.

  • Together with the University of Transport Technology (UTT), we installed a charging station based on 2nd-life batteries at the Aeon mall in Hanoi. The station supported the launching of the shared e-2 wheeler system developed by the local company QiQ Elevate Mobility,
  • The company Tojo Motors – sitting in Pasig, Philippines – has completed the development of the prototype of a flexible vehicle, an e-quadricycle for passenger and cargo use to support the City’s day-to-day operations. The company has tested different types of batteries. Together with them, we integrated our 2nd-life batteires into the vehicles and run several tests to assess the opportunities and challenges in using this type of batteries for micro-mobility applications.
