LiNa Energy Chosen for Innovate UK Battery Technology Programme in Japan
Will Tope, LiNa CCO: “Japan is a powerhouse of the battery industry from research and development through to manufacturing and system integration. The GBIP to Japan is a fantastic opportunity for LiNa to expand our understanding of Japanese battery markets and discover manufacturing and system integration partners to scale-up our lithium and cobalt free battery.”
LiNa Energy has been selected as one of the few companies participating in the Battery Technology GBIP Japan by Innovate UK. With a full agenda planned and valuable networking meetings scheduled, LiNa’s CCO Will Tope will travel to Japan at the end of August to enhance LiNa’s market knowledge and build collaborations.
As part of the Global Business Innovation Programme, Innovate UK and Innovate UK EDGE bring a delegation of some of the UK’s most promising innovators focusing on battery development and emerging battery technologies. This programme contributes to Innovate UK’s ongoing commitment to drive productivity and economic growth to the UK’s battery technologies industry, together with collaboration with key strategic global partners to solve shared challenges.
LiNa Energy is one of 14 ambitious UK companies that will use the visit to Japan as an opportunity to engage with key stakeholders, hear cutting-edge ideas, discover new interests, and network with other professionals who share a similar appetite for forward-focused collaboration. The combination of commercial expertise, creative excellence, and technological innovation across the two countries has the potential to generate a significant value add for companies who operate in both markets.
