Researchers and specialists working in Luke provide new solutions towards the sustainable development of the Finnish bioeconomy and the promotion of new biobased businesses. Together with our partners we will build a society based on bioeconomy.
Sustainable use of natural resources calls for advances in know-how and new business models – as well as close collaboration. We bring together experts in natural resources and sustainable food production. This makes us one of the most multi-disciplinary research institutes in our industry worldwide.

Luke also carries out statutory government work. We monitor natural resources, certify plant production, inspect control agents, store genetic resources, produce data on greenhouse gases, support natural resource policies and produce Finland’s official food and natural resource statistics.
