EFI has signed an agreement with SLU to continue the work of the Forest Bioeconomy Network (ForBioeconomy) until the end of 2025.

EFI research networks include EFI member organisations and other research partners, and aim to enhance European and/or regional scientific cooperation and coordination of transnational research.

The Forest Bioeconomy Network is coordinated by SLU with the support of the Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE) and Nordic Forest Research (SNS) and was created in May 2019. The Network contributes to the implementation of EFI’s work on Bioeconomy, and primarily focuses on the forest-based bioeconomy in the context of northern Europe, addressing both regional diversity as well as emerging challenges and opportunities.

Recent work by the Network has included publication of a report on The Forest in Northern Europe’s Emerging Bioeconomy - reflections on the forest’s role in the bioeconomy which discusses the bioeconomy transformation and green innovation in Finland, Norway and Sweden, and highlights the challenges facing forests.
