Research and development is, in many ways, very close to the traditional TV-shopping business. About one in a hundred products or ideas actually work, and all possible circus acts are performed to secure funding. In the end, guarantees come afterwards. Doesn’t sound familiar?

Evolving ecosystem

Finland is the only significant European producer of raw materials for electric vehicle batteries. It is estimated that manufacturing a fully electric vehicle requires around 8 kg of lithium, 50 kg of nickel and 6 kg of cobalt. Due to the increasing demand for electric vehicles and batteries, we can also expect the demand of raw materials to grow. The time to build a leading ecosystem is now.
