The Nordic battery collaboration is anchored at the ministerial level and operationalized by our municipalities, research institutions, clusters as well as the individual companies.
In our next “Nordic Battery Thursday”, the Nordic trade and investment agencies Business Finland, Business Sweden and Innovation Norway together with the European Battery Alliance cooperate with Kokkola Material Week’s GeoKokkola session, which focuses on the refining of battery minerals, preparation of battery chemicals, and new solutions for circular economy. The session can be followed as a live stream or attended on-site in Kokkola, Finland. Please note that this session will not be recorded.
Kokkola Material Week is an annual, international chemical industry, bioeconomy and battery technology event. The Kokkola Material Week program is available on the event’s website.
