Liten plays a central role in European innovation

As one of Europe's premier technological research institutes, Liten is in constant contact with European decisionmakers and is a stakeholder in European technology platforms, federations, and several public-private partnerships.


These activities have made Liten the hub of a vast network that has positioned the institute to either lead or participate in more than 100 European collaborative research projects in new energy technologies and materials addressing the following topics:

  • Solar energy
  • Batteries, hydrogen, and thermal energy storage
  • Closing the carbon cycle
  • Energy efficiency
  • Waste recycling
  • Energy systems and grids
  • Transport
  • Advanced materials and circular economy
  • Printed and structural electronics


Some of these projects aim to support the emergence of new industries that are strategic for Europe: BATTERY 2030+, SUNGERGYCICERONESMARTEES et SMARTEES2, and TEESMAT.
