The project aims at identifying the focuses in forest policy that will be approached by research. Metla's current research topics in the socioeconomic field will be surveyed. Also the extension and outreach activities of Metla's socioeconomic research will be evaluated and future plans sketched. The project intensifies research coordination within Metla, and supports the upcoming research program planning in Metla.

Results

1. To a large extent, resources of this project were directed at background work for the renewal of the Finnish National Forestry Program (Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry). The results were published in Hetemäki et al. 2006: Suomen metsiin perustuva hyvinvointi 2015: Katsaus Suomen metsäalan kehityseen ja tulevaisuuden vaihtoehtoihin. Metla working papers 26.

2. An interview survey was geared toward interest groups of Metla's economic and social research. The results are summarized in an unpublished report Enroth, R-R ja K. Valtonen: Sidosryhmähaastattelut Metlan yhteiskunnallis-taloudellisen tutkimuksen kehittämisen pohjaksi: yhteenveto.
