Research on materials from the forest on IVA's 100 list 2021
When IVA lists current research projects with a special potential to create societal impact, there are two projects using the forest as a raw material - 'Fully green energy harvester' and 'Nordic Biorubber'.

This year’s Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) 100 list focuses on crisis preparedness and society’s ability to handle crises. Of the 51 listed projects, two projects use the forest as a raw material:
