Research

Luke resolves challenges in the sustainable and profitable use of renewable natural resources in four phenomenon-based research programmes that steer research in accordance with Luke’s strategy.

The programmes build and develop cooperation with different stakeholders using such means as round table discussions. Furthermore, the programmes open up new connections inside Luke by bringing Luke’s specialists and expertise together and by supporting multidisciplinary researcher networks.

The research programmes have set their sights firmly on the future. They build Luke’s effectiveness in Finland and internationally and aim to have a societal impact.

Luke’s research programmes are

  • Profitable and responsible primary production
  • Circular bioeconomy
  • Climate smart carbon cycle
  • Adaptive and resilient bioeconomy

In addition Luke has a programme for Statutory and expert services and Statistics.

Research Programmes

Climate-Smart Carbon Cycle

Maankäyttösektorilla on merkittävä rooli ilmastonmuutoksen hillinnässä sekä maankäytöstä ja alkutuotannosta johtuvan, ilmastonmuutoksen entisestään kiihdyttämän vesiympäristön tilan heikkenemisen pysäyttämisessä. Ohjelman haasteena on globaalin ilmastokriisin ja sen ekosysteemivaikutusten selättäminen.

Adaptive and Resilient Bioeconomy

Foresight, adaptation, and risk management are means to prepare for the great upheavals threatening nature and society, such as climate change and the biodiversity loss. The research programme’s challenge is to form a comprehensive view of the complex interrelations between ecosystems, production environments and society, as well as retaining a capacity to operate in changing conditions.

Profitable and responsible primary production

The use of fields, forests, and waters is subject to new and increasingly demanding needs. The research programme’s challenge is to solve how to increase the profitability of food and raw material production in primary production and respond to market demand, and simultaneously ensure the mitigation of climate and environmental impacts.
