“Not even the best research data produces any benefits if it is not used. A sustainable bioeconomy needs actions from all parts of society”. Pasi Rikkonen, Programme Director

We promote a sustainable bioeconomy and the changes it requires in society. We have an impact on the forming of policies related to the sustainable and acceptable use of renewable natural resources and on the spreading of sustainable technologies and business models. We study the functioning of markets and create ways that help to build climate resilience in society.
