Green eDIH Launches Selection Call for ChargeConnect Project Team

Green eDIH, an initiative dedicated to promoting digital and innovative technologies for a sustainable future, is excited to announce a selection call for young enthusiasts and passionate individuals to join the ChargeConnect project team. This research project aims to identify how the reshaping of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure through advanced digital solutions can meet user needs.

About the ChargeConnect Project

ChargeConnect aims to enhance EV charging infrastructure through Citizens Science research and the promotion of standardization efforts. The project addresses the pressing challenges of interoperability and the usage of EV charging stations through an extensive research initiative.

Managed by Green eDIH and executed by BPA Target, one of the founding members, ChargeConnect tackles key challenges in EV charging infrastructure interoperability and utilization.

Funded by the IMPETUS 2nd Joint Open Call, ChargeConnect aligns with the “Sustainable Lifestyles” challenge. Selected applicants, including BPA Target, receive a grant and participate in a seven-month mentorship and support program. This allows BPA Target to leverage collective expertise to improve EV charging infrastructure, promote sustainable transportation solutions, and encourage innovation in EV charging.

ChargeConnect aims to collect various types of data, including user experiences with EV charging stations, interoperability information, and accessibility data. The results will include geo-tagged data, visual evidence, survey responses, and analytical information. Some results and datasets will be openly available to the public, researchers, and stakeholders, including aggregated datasets, comprehensive reports, interactive visualizations, and recommendations disseminated through various channels to promote research goals and stakeholder engagement.
