VW, Northvolt launch battery consortium for Europe
Volkswagen has launched yet another battery research consortium for Europe, this time with Swedish battery startup Northvolt, to tap funding from the German government.
for Scientific Research, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Fundacion Cidetec, National Institute of Chemistry, Slovenia, SINTEF), three industry-led associations (EMIRI, EASE, RECHARGE) and one company (Absiskey). 

VW maintains that having partners from research and industry in seven EU member states provides comprehensive research collaboration will range from raw material production, to cell technology and cell production processes and through to recycling. The research activities will also focus on the development and engineering of plant technologies allowing sustainable, climate friendly and competitive battery cell production in the European Union. 

However the 'union' will start in 2020, aiming to boost planned research activities and tapping into funding announced by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
