Main content

FinnCERES collaborates with companies and society. The collaboration encompasses top-level research on biomaterials to create innovations, next-generation knowledge and talent. For society, collaboration means conveying the benefits of novel bioeconomy materials to the general public.

What we can offer

FinnCERES offers an innovative way for companies to develop new biomaterials-based products.

FinnCERES is a new innovative operating model. It combines universities, research institutes, and companies. The new collaboration will result in a new and internationally unique knowledge and understanding of biomaterials and their potential. FinnCERES brings researchers and companies together at the early stages of research. This ensures that research results are quickly available for product development by companies.

How to join

FinnCERES is intended for companies interested in biomaterials, but those interested in biomaterials research may also join.

By taking part in FinnCERES, companies receive front-row access to new and internationally unique research, the work of top experts, and research infrastructure from laboratories as well as large-scale pilot projects.

Co-create or Be in touch

There are two classes of membership: Co-create and Be in touch.

The Co-create membership is intended for companies who want tailored services and want to have firm ties with FinnCERES. Co-create membership costs 20,000 euros for large firms and 2,000 euros for small ones. The Be in touch membership is free. It is intended for those interested in biomaterials research.

For the Co-create membership, a contract is drawn up between the company and FinnCERES. The agreement is valid for one year at a time. FinnCERES Co-create members have access to special services exclusively intended for them. FinnCERES will also be involved in business-driven projects that can be confidential and funded by public money.
