The objective is for Finland to have a successful and innovative forest cluster that offers the most sought-after products and services in the world. The sector is a frontrunner in the bioeconomy. In order for the forest industry to thrive, not only does profitability have to be improved but the industry must also be revamped and innovations developed further. Success is largely dependent on how competitive and customer-oriented the industry’s products, solutions and services are. This is why the entire forest cluster strives to continuously develop new products and innovations.
