Synthetic biology as an enabler of sustainable bioeconomy: A roadmap for Finland

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    This presentation and roadmap for Finland was born from a need to inform the industry, policymakers and the general public of the rapid change in industrial operations made possible by synthetic biology. Finland's bioeconomy strategy emphasises the development of sustainable industrial applications based on renewable raw materials. In these plans, the possibilities of industrial biotechnology are not always sufficiently taken into account. Boosted by synthetic biology, in particular, biotechnology can play a major role as a diversifier and value adder of Finland's bioeconomy.
