Bioeconomy is a national focus area in Finland. Plants provide us with oxygen, food, fibre, renewable energy, even medical compounds. Our research aims to understand plant growth and environmental responses from molecular signalling pathways to forest ecosystems, and thereby address challenges from crop improvement to climate change and utilizing plants in new ways.
Grand Challenge projects
- Value networks from plant genomics of crops, native plants and forest trees
- Climate smart northern agriculture (Climsage)
