Cluster 4th Generation EV: New cluster members increase the cluster impact
The Cluster “4th Generation EV” was set-up late 2013 by the European projects INCOBAT, iCOMPOSE and eDAS, with the purpose to synchronize on and conjointly promote the R&D topics on electric vehicle. By growing to a total of five projects with the FP7 projects Batteries2020 and IMPROVE, the cluster also enlarges its networks and range of influence on the European electric vehicle community.
Uniting more than 40 partners from 12 countries all over Europe, including 7 OEMs, with an overall budget of more than 36 million Euros, the impact of the cluster on the next generation of electric vehicles keeps on growing.
The “4th Generation EV” cluster is organized around the three following working groups:
- Comprehensive energy management
- Performance potential of vehicle electrification
- Central computing platform
