Welcome to the launch event of the Hydrogen & Batteries program in Helsinki on Tuesday June 13 at 13.00-17.30!

Business Finland has launched a new program “Hydrogen & Batteries – Dual helix of decarbonization”. The program will run for six years, until the end of 2028. The main goal of this new program is to catalyze Finnish companies and stakeholders to capture huge commercial opportunities in long-term transitional growth in hydrogen and battery industries.

To kick off the new program, we will organize a launch event on Tuesday June 13. At the launch event you will hear keynote speeches from industry leaders, inspiring addresses from hydrogen and battery companies and more details on what the program has to offer for the coming six years. After the seminar, you will have the opportunity to network and form new contacts with other participants.
