Ministry of the Environment (MoE) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MoAF) are funding research and development projects supporting METSO Programme for approximately 2 million euros per year. There are four different funding instruments:

1. Nature management projects (MoAF)

2. Research on commercial forests (MoAF)

See e.g. the research project Knowledge, communication and targeting of biodiversity conservation (2013-2016) coordinated by Riikka Paloniemi from SYKE.

3. Research programme of deficiently known and threatened forest species (PUTTE, MoE, 2009-2016)


4. Co-operation networks (MoE & MoAF)


All the above projects are coordinated by Kaisu Aapala working at SYKE.
