Pyhäsalmi, in the Town of Pyhäjärvi, hosts one of the northernmost deep underground laboratories in Europe, the Callio Lab. Its origins are in underground physics (Centre for Underground Physics in Pyhäsalmi, CUPP), but gradually it has turned into a multi- and transdisciplinary research environment utilising both the surface and underground. Besides research, the infrastructure is open for business and innovation under the Callio — Mine for Business. The pre-investment for an underground pumped-hydro storage facility to be built at the area utilising the existing tunnel network for construction has been made. This investment ensures the existing and future utilisation of the underground and surface facilities.
