The governance of battery value chains

06/07/2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Batteries are foundational for many of the technologies that will define the economies of the 21st century. However, global battery value chains are neither economically secure nor socially sustainable. What are the governance challenges facing this critical technology industry? How can governments and businesses in the Indo-Pacific collaborate to develop more resilient battery value chains? The Future Battery Industry Cooperative Research Centre and the Perth USAsia Centre are pleased to launch a flagship study on the governance of the global battery industry.

The web link can be accessed from 2.45pm on 8th July. The event will commence at 3.00pm.
