Energy Academy session

  • Friday, 25 March at 12.00-13.40 local time
  • Vaasa City Hall, Art Hall

During this session, we have the opportunity to listen to companies’ experiences and future plans within Energy Academy and learn about energy technical studies offered by universities in Vaasa.

 

Energy Academy is a cooperation model between universities and leading companies in the Vaasa region.

It is designed to increase the appeal of the area to students and graduates as well as to create better connections between working life, RDI and young talents.

We bring together all six universities in Vaasa: University of Vaasa, Vaasa University of Applied Sciences, Novia University of Applied Sciences, Hanken School of Economics, University of Helsinki and Åbo Akademi University.

Companies and hubs involved are ABB Oy, Danfoss, EnergyVaasa, Hitachi Energy, Merinova, City of Vaasa, Vaasan Sähkö, VASEK and Wärtsilä Finland.

The model is tightly connected to the Nordic Battery Belt, making Vaasa area an essential link in the sustainable value chain in Finland, Sweden and Norway.

Energy Academy insists on healing the planet for future generations – and making Vaasa a better place to live, study and work.
