We are excited to share that Boreal Alliance is expanding and getting organised. The first Alliance Steering Committee meeting was held on 19 January, bringing together members from Finland, Canada, Sweden, and Switzerland.
The leadership of Boreal Alliance will be annually rotated. In 2022, the Alliance will be led by the Bioproducts Institute at UBC. Kelley Oh will act as the Alliance Manager. The Boreal Alliance members are organizing and actively participating in several high-profile events focusing on research, education and supporting policymaking. In addition, the collaboration is enhanced by researcher exchange, and facilitating the utilization of members' infrastructure.
Boreal Alliance aims to identify opportunities to promote collaboration on bio-based materials science and innovations, and welcomes interested academic partners to join the mission.
