SK Innovation is set to meet with global energy experts to secure future growth drivers.

SK Innovation announced that it will host the “SK Innovation Global Forum” on July 13 (KST) in San Jose, California, the U.S. The forum will be attended by approximately ten key executives from SK Innovation affiliates, including Lee Seok-hee, CEO of SK On, and Lee Seong-jun, Head of SK Innovation Institute of Environmental Science & Technology, along with around 50 representatives from academia and industry related to global energy.

Since 2021, SK Innovation has been hosting the Global Forum to expand its global network, which supports the execution of SK Innovation’s strategies. Through this initiative, SK Innovation aims to enhance its global competitiveness by engaging and collaborating with outstanding overseas talent.

Specifically, this year’s Global Forum will feature five sessions on the following topics: Secondary Batteries, Battery Thermal Runaway Prevention Technology, Geo Biz & Tech, Carbon Materials, and Open Innovation. Discussions will center on future energy strategies and the development direction of battery technology. Each session will be conducted in various formats, including group discussions and expert presentations.

Additionally, SK Innovation will use this event to directly scout global talents who will lead future energy businesses. In last year’s Global Forum, SK Innovation secured a pool of outstanding talents, including employees from global energy companies and distinguished scholars from prestigious universities, and has maintained connections with them.

“The SK Innovation Global Forum has established itself as a leading networking platform for sharing trends and technologies in the global energy industry,” said an SK Innovation official. “We will accumulate the know-how and achievements of the forum to enhance the execution capabilities of SK Innovation affiliates’ core businesses, such as batteries and overseas resource development.”
