The Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry is Finland’s only academic expert in the end-to-end sustainable food chain and a world-class player in forestry. The progression of urbanisation and climate change calls for more research to help us find solutions to global food safety and sustainable, local food production, as well as to build a carbon-neutral society. The Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry combines insight into the wellbeing and behaviour of humans with an understanding of ecosystem functions.
Donors have played a significant role in advancing the research carried out at the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry and in supporting students. The latest achievements made possible by donated assets include a measuring station for the greenhouse gas balance of arable land, a professorship in forest technology and logistics, as well as the Faculty’s first professor of practice.
