The technical area is divided into four research blocks, with the following working areas:
- Primary metallurgy, FB 23010
- Converter metallurgy, FB 23030
- Secondary metallurgy, FB 23040
- Refractory materials, FB 23080
The technical area is divided into four research blocks, all of which report to a technical committee comprising the chairman, the chairmen of the research blocks and Jernkontoret’s research managers. The highest decision-making body is the technical area’s general meeting, where all participating companies in the research blocks are represented.
The technical committee meets 3-4 times a year at Jernkontoret or at member companies. The general meeting, on the other hand, is held every spring.

Purpose and general orientation
Technical area 23 is divided into four research blocks, with different working areas. The research blocks plan, implement and report research activities within the respective fields. The blocks prepare items for consideration, such as new research activities for decision in the technical area. The blocks present the research activities carried out to the technical committee. Membership of the research blocks determines participation in the technical area.
How does one become a member of the technical area?
The technical committee determines the acceptance of new members. Please contact the Research Manager of the technical area if you are interested in participating, or if you have questions on operations, membership fees etc.
