The forest industry of Finland is regenerating through radical change. At the same time as it is improving its profitability, efforts to establish new business activities and improve competitiveness through research and development are underway. Developing new business activities and products safeguards the industry’s competitiveness and establishes a firm foundation for the future. This goal is supported by the forest cluster’s shared research and development projects as well as by corporate R&D ventures.
A successful forest cluster will continue to operate in Finland decades from now, taking advantage of a renewable raw material in a sustainable and diverse manner. The cluster will also provide jobs and a source of income to people around the world.
