Building solutions for a sustainable society

We research environmental changes and their backgrounds, as well as search for methods to resolve problems. Our work involves interaction between nature, the environment and humans.

We tackle significant environmental problems such as climate change and the adequacy of natural resources. We predict future events and changes and spearhead initiatives with successful trials.

Hundreds of research projects are underway

We carry out broad-scoped monitoring and research of the environment. We examine the world from the perspective of natural sciences and social sciences. Our expertise is of a high standard.

SYKE is a broad-based research and expert institute. With regard to the impact of our work, we feel it is important to work with decision-makers, companies, municipalities and citizens in numerous Finnish and international networks.
