SNS is collaborating with the Nordic Joint Committee for Agricultural and Food Research (NKJ) by financing Nordic research networks. The aim is to promote international and cross-sectorial networking between researchers and stakeholders from the agricultural and forestry sectors.
These networks will form a platform for communication and assess challenges, knowledge gaps and opportunities emerging from the transition towards a bioeconomy. They could for example include plant disease in a changing climate, the use of big data in a bio-economy and land-use for biomass production in the Nordic countries.
The topics could also be wider, including for example invasive species and pests, the energy sector, food security, mitigating climate change, horticulture, aquaculture, apiculture or promotion of agroforestry systems.
