Doctoral School in Environmental, Food and Biological Sciences

The Doctoral School in Environmental, Food and Biological Sciences (Finnish acronym YEB for Ympäristö-, elintarvike- ja biotieteellinen tutkijakoulu) is multidisciplinary by nature and consists of six doctoral programmes. The research fields within the doctoral school typically integrate both basic and applied sciences. On the one hand, studies produce basic information on ecosystems and organisms while on the other hand they seek solutions to challenges such as environmental change, nature conservation, development needs of biotechnology and the need for a safe and sustainable food chain.
