BioWiseTrans is a Nordic initiative that aims to maintain and develop a network for studying and promoting transition to a new bioenonomy primarily based on land and forest-based biomass production. In January, a workshop was held in Joensuu in Finland in which researchers and project partners from Sweden, Norway, and Finland participated.
The network project, which started in September last year, will continue until 2020 and is funded by the Nordic Joint Committee for Agricultural and Food Research, Nordic Forest Research and other partners. Margareta Dahlström and Ida Grundel from CRS participate in the network. Early this year, a workshop and a study visit took place in Joensuu in Finnish Karelia.
