Welcome to this onsite event to explore what the Hydrogen & Batteries program has to offer for the upcoming year!

Hydrogen and Batteries program is heading to its first full calendar year of operations. In this event, you will hear about the outline of the planned activities for 2024 in the program target markets.

During this event we will also hear from some Leading companies which have hydrogen on their roadmaps. You have a chance to learn and discuss what kind of hydrogen related activities these companies have and what kind of partnerships they are still looking for.

Come to the Team Finland House on December 12 to hear more about these themes and to network with likeminded people!
