03 January 2018 Natural Resources Institute Finland

Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) and University of Eastern Finland (UEF) have published their view on the role of forest-based bioeconomy in the EU. Furthermore, the position paper proposes what kind of forest research should be prioritized in the EU in the coming years.

The paper stresses that forest-related policies and decision making need to be based on solid scientific evidence to address climate change and to create sustainable growth.

The key policy and, thus, research areas include:

  • sustainable, resilient and climate-smart forestry
  • multiple use of forests
  • transformation from non-renewables towards sustainable bio-based materials
  • responsive multi-actor forest governance
