NIFU Breakfast Webinar 19th of March: Where does the green economy grow?

What is in the future for the forest-based bioeconomy? We share key findings from case studies from Finland, Norway and Sweden, and practitioners in industry and policy offer their reflections.

Time: Friday the 19th of March, 08.00-09.00

In the Nordic project «Where does the green economy grow? The geography of Nordic sustainability transitions» (GONST) researchers at NIFU, Sintef, Lund University, Aalborg University, Denmark’s Technical University and Tampere University have studied green industrial development in different sectoral and geographical contexts in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

Three of the case studies have been on the forest-based bioeconomy: Central Finland, Trøndelag in Norway, and Värmland in Sweden.

Representatives of key cluster organisations will share their experiences about working with ‘green industrial change’ in the forest-based bioeconomy.
