Business development and bioeconomy
Good business development in rural areas requires the development and use of research-based knowledge. We research business development in district industries such as agriculture and forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, travel and tourism, use of outfield and the coastal zone.
In our research, we examine, among other things, the importance of the interaction between resource base, market, regulations and socio-cultural mechanisms. We research how new technology is used and how this affects business practice, and examine the living conditions and quality of life of business people and the local population.
