This research consortium will contribute to the renewal of the scientific knowledge base and provides for decision making smart means, solutions and tools needed to sustainably improve resource-efficiency and climate-neutrality of management and utilization of Finnish forests and to adapt to the changing operational environment (e.g. changing climate and demands of forest-based bioeconomy and society). Our research will cover: (i) tailored forest management and biomass production, (ii) resource smart feedstock supply for the bio-based symbioses, (iii) new value chains for forest biomass-based green chemicals, (iv) sustainability and acceptability of climate-neutral and resource-efficient forest-based bioeconomy, and (v) development opportunities of Finnish forest bioeconomy as a part of global change and European Union. The project will collaborate with many key interaction partners to ensure the societal significance, relevance and impacts of research.
