Bioeconomy and Sustainable Use of Natural Resources

Research in Bioeconomics is conducted at the Raasepori Campus. We have solid project knowledge at regional, national, and international levels. In addition, through our own research and development institute Aronia, we have created contacts within the life sciences research community in Finland, other Nordic countries, as well as internationally.

The coast of Finland is a unique environment with great untapped potential. We want to be a developing force for small-scale diversity and resource intelligence. Additionally, we have many years of experience working with municipalities, trade associations, and producers in the convenience food sector. In municipal environmental management and planning, we have focused on gathering and processing information in an easy-to-manage, map-based format for different decision-making processes. We have already tested this in projects within the areas of sewage management and water area planning.
