SUFOGIS aims to respond to the needs identified by promotion of sustainable forestry and ecology in Russia and China through improved university-enterprise cooperation by enhancing skills and competences of students and professionals. The project also aims to enforce capacity building in the fields of GIS and remote sensing in higher education institutions in partner countries.
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.
