About the Event


The growing global population is triggering an increase in the consumption of textiles. Already at this moment, the textile sector is one of the biggest polluters and there is an urgency to develop sustainable circular textile solutions - from raw materials to the product end-of-life. One alternative is wood-based textiles, which could generate important new business opportunities for the forest sector.

Japan and Finland have a long tradition in research and business co-operation in the field of forest bioeconomy and bio-based products. Besides, our countries have complementary knowledge, know-how, and both industrial and commercial value chain in using forests, wood and creating sustainable textiles.

To support and intensify research and innovation co-operation between Japan and Finland, Business Finland, FinnCERES and UNITE are jointly organising and inviting you to
