FinnCERES – Competence Centre for the Materials Bioeconomy

The FinnCERES Flagship focuses on future solutions of the bioeconomy and materials research. Researchers in the Flagship aim to develop, for instance, novel lignocellulose-based materials towards industrial production for international markets.

Completely new kinds of materials have wide application in several life domains: textiles, wearables, household products, air and water purification systems, next-generation catalysts, ultralight transport and energy harvesting systems. The Flagship bases its research firmly on sustainable development, and the researchers believe that the solutions to be developed have the potential to simultaneously generate growth and increase societal welfare in a sustainable manner.
