Project description

BattValue project provides courses with professional level knowledge of existing and future battery concepts to those working in the mining, metal refining, processing and battery end-user sector (energy sector, automotive industry), and gives an excellent basis to enhance their skills in the field. Courses draw upon the latest expertise in the battery sector and cover the value chain from battery minerals to batteries. Each developed course also takes into account environmental and sustainability aspects. Learners will achieve new knowledge, both theoretical and practical, in the battery value chain. This improves their skills to work in the production, product development or customer services in companies.
