What a wood can do? Concrete solutions for sustainable bioeconomy

Hosted by MEP Henna Virkkunen
Keynote speech by European Commission Vice-President Jyrky Katainen

Global megatrends such as resource scarcity, urbanisation, changing population structure, conscious consumption and digitalisation create permanent changes in the world we live in. How can wood-based products answer these challenges?



The exhibition of Finnish Usi puu – New Wood, an initiative of various bioeconomy actors, proudly presents wood-based solutions to global challenges. Come and see yourself how wood-based packaging, pharmaceuticals or textiles can offer us sustainable consumption choices for a better future. 

All participants are kindly requested to register for the event by 18 August 2017 via registration form here. Places are filled by first come first served basis.
