Update: Signed Memorandum of Understanding
Finland and the state of Michigan in the United States have launched a partnership to develop solutions for clean technology, including smart mobility, battery technology, and sustainable bioeconomy.
Finland and Michigan are committed to promoting a carbon-neutral economy and ambitious climate action. Finnish Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä and the Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 4 March during a visit by a Team Finland delegation to Detroit, Lansing and the surrounding area. Michigan, with its strong Finnish cultural heritage, is the heartland of the US automotive industry and accounts for 75% of the country’s automotive research and development.
The visit clearly showed that the opportunities for co-operation are wide-ranging also between the universities and research organizations. The delegation created connections among others with the University of Michigan and Michigan Technological University (MTU) covering all MOU’s sectors.
