Knowhow for the battery sector

The University of Oulu will offer continuing education in the battery sector to industry players during autumn 2023 and spring 2024. The aim is to promote the development and international competitiveness of the battery industry in a sustainable way.

The training consists of four different parts:

  • Commercialisation and business

  • Mineral exploration and processing

  • Battery chemicals and production

  • Robotics and automation

Each part consists of 2-3 courses. The courses are independent entities – you can pick the courses that best suit your needs or complete the entire module.

For whom?

The training is aimed at people working in the battery industry or its value chain. However, you can participate even if you are not yet working in the sector - an interest in working in the field and previous study or work experience in engineering or science is sufficient.

How and when?

The trainings will take place during autumn 2023 and spring 2024. The studies are designed to be completed alongside work. Teaching largely takes place online, so you can participate wherever you are. Learning through practical projects allows you to put what you have learned straight into practice for instance in your current place of employment.

Do the studies cost anything?

The battery industry training courses in autumn 2023 and spring 2024 will be completely free of charge for participants. The courses are funded by the Service Centre for Continuous Learning and Employment, Jotpa.

Take advantage now of the opportunity for free training and deepen your skills in a fast-growing sector with significant investment potential in Finland.
