Technological development

Our technology team supports the technological progress of the Finnish mining and battery industry. This is carried out by developing the operations of our portfolio companies as well as other investments. 

Our technological activities have different ways to develop portfolio companies and the industry at large.  

  • Operational improvement projects develop and improve portfolio company processes as well as take previously learnt process improvement practices to non-portfolio companies.  
  • Research projects focusing on jointly-funded projects with partners targeting challenges and opportunities in the long-term.  
  • New investment support for new investment diligence, feasibility as well as development through content know-how.
