SUSTAINABLE UTILIZATION OF NATURAL RESOURCES
The well-being of humanity calls for the responsible and sustainable utilization of natural resources. Climate change mitigation, urbanization and new technologies all depend on the intelligent use of available natural resources. Challenges concern the sufficiency of natural resources, various environmental issues and conflicts of interest regarding the utilization of natural resources.
Circular economy, resource-efficient methods, new materials and cutting-edge technologies aid us to use natural resources in a sustainable manner. The development of these fields requires research, innovations and breakthroughs related to natural resources.
We provide funding for research that is related to Finnish natural resources, carried out primarily in Finland and aimed at finding epochal solutions for climate-neutral and resource-wise economy. Our funding targets research that has the potential to make a difference.
