Finland is striving for world-class recognition as a pioneer of batterychemistry. National and international competence and cooperation is needed, particularly in the implementation of carbon-neutral electricity production.
The lead project for battery chemistry is based on the National Battery Strategy 2025. The goals of the National Battery Strategy include expanding expertise, promoting sustainability and expediting competitiveness.
Finland wants to be an internationally renowned expert in the value chains of battery chemistry.
Bringing together Finnish battery chemistry expertise increases opportunities for growth in Finland while
opening doors to international cooperation. Cooperation can extensively utilise local special expertise and promote the export industry, bringing new investments to Finland and in Finland.
The cooperation cities in the lead project for battery chemistry are Kokkola, Vaasa, Pori, Turku, Lappeenranta, Jyväskylä and Kuopio. The project is implemented by the City of Kokkola in cooperation with the Kokkola University Consortium Chydenius under the University of Oulu, Centria University of Applied Sciences and Keski-Pohjanmaan Koulutusyhtymä.
The project is advanced with the help of the following three measures:
- strengthening international top-level expertise in battery chemistry and increasing effectiveness and visibility
- strengthening and marketing of national and regional expertise
- industrial service concepts in the battery chemistry value chain.
