Our four research programmes aim to create new bio-based products and business opportunities, increase productivity by digitalization, support regional vitality by circular economy, create well-being from immaterial values, and support the profitability of healthy food production. In addition, we also carry out statutory government services such as monitoring natural resources, certifying plant production, inspecting control agents, storing genetic resources, producing data on greenhouse gases, supporting natural resource policies and producing Finland’s official food and natural resource statistics.
We anticipate trends in the global natural resources economy and tailor our services to meet our customers’ changing needs. We offer our customers research and development services based on our outstanding biological and technological expertise. We use high-quality experimental research environments and extensive data resources.
