Networking Event for Students

Are you a student interested in the circular forest-based bioeconomy?

Join us on 24 October at 17:00 to connect with fellow enthusiasts in the circular forest-based bioeconomy. Expand your network, explore the world of forest bioeconomy, relax in the sauna and savour delicious snacks.

The circular forest-based bioeconomy is an exciting field that offers many opportunities for creativity and innovation. It is a growing sector focused on using forest resources sustainably and circularly.

If you are a student interested in bioeconomy entrepreneurship and ready to change, this event is for you. You will have the opportunity to network with other students, researchers, and businesspeople working in the field.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn from others and to build relationships while exploring the world of bioeconomy in a relaxed and informal setting, enjoying a Finnish sauna and savouring delicious snacks.

About us

The NOMADI project supports companies in the forest-based sector by seeking new solutions through the digitalisation of forest services. The project also helps to create new marketing and business concepts, supporting new bioeconomy start-ups and the scale-up of innovations – particularly ideas targeted towards remote private forest owners and forest management services and tools are welcome.

NOMADI is funded by the Regional Council of North Karelia through the European Regional Development Fund as a part of the European Union’s COVID-19 activities (REACT-EU).
