WebFOCUS Report
Project description
The consortium orchestrates end-user driven systemic development and growth of sustainable and diversified bioeconomy with the research agenda organized under four WPs: 1) Grand societal challenges and related policy drivers, 2) Changing consumer behavior and consumer-driven business models, 3) Bioeconomy industry transition and business networks, 4) Orchestrating a user-driven future for the sustainable forest bioeconomy. From the Finnish perspective, our core focus is placed on the forests, but with sectoral boundaries blurring via policy drivers, market substitution and new forms of competition and co-operation across industries, our results have wider relevance to the future the of (bio)economy. The Consortium with its international network is highly multidisciplinary and brings together leading experts from forest sciences, environmental economics, consumer science, sustainability management, strategy research and futures studies, a necessity to understanding of future pathways.
