Swedish Mining Innovation Program day – a digital drop in/drop out event

5 October 2021

Date: 5 October 2021
Time: 9.45-ca 14.45
Place: Digital event via Teams

The program day will be held in English.

What is at the forefront of Swedish mining innovation?

Join us for a digital buffet of presentations from Swedish Mining Innovation’s project portfolio.

You will receive up-to-date information on what is going on along the entire value chain, everything from the program’s major strategic investments to updates from ongoing full-scale projects, pilot projects and pre-studies. We will also present our open calls, and this year’s two innovation idea competition winners will join us and talk about their future plans.

Join us the whole day, or listen in to what interests you.

Warm welcome!
