Getting to the conference 


The Barents region in a biobased future   

Welcome to a conference on the multiple-functions the forest plays in a future bioeconomy. Over the course of three days, participants from industry, forest stakeholders, policy, research and development, and education will discuss the forest in a biobased future in Northern Europe, with a particular focus on the Barents region.   


The conference commences with a workshop focused on labor supply, equal opportunities and education aimed at providing a platform for young persons in the beginning of their career. Here they can discuss future prospects of the forest sector together with representatives from business and policy. The conference continues with high-level practice-oriented presentations with focus on examples from Finland, Norway, Russia and Sweden. The sessions cover topics such as opportunities and challenges of the forest role in the bioeconomy transformation. All through the conference there will be opportunities for networking and the third day will offer practical demonstrations in forest-related excursions.  

The conference is open to all.
