Bioeconomy Research Team in Raseborg

The research team is an initiative for improving the interaction between academic basic research and applied research- and development. Our team is founded on a core group of Senior Researchers with their own externally funded research groups. We do goal oriented work to strengthen our know-how in order to make Novia a central actor in the implementation of the national bioeconomic strategy.

The research team is located at Novia campus Raseborg and is directed by docent Eva Sandberg-Kilpi, dean of the Faculty of Bioeconomy. The Bioeconomy Research Team has been active since the beginning of 2016 as a direct follow-up to the Aronia research collegium, which was discontinued in the end of 2015.
