FutureForest2040 - Suomen metsäalan rakenteelliset muutokset, sekä markkina- ja työllisyysnäkymät vuoteen 2040

This project aims at foresighting possible structural changes in the Finnish forest-based sector, and market and employment impacts accordingly in 2040. The project is carried out by EFI and the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy (Etla), with the financial support of Metsämiesten Säätiö Foundation. While main part of the work will be carried out in Finnish, the project will also publish its results in English. This page will be updated as the project progresses.
