Metla's highly motivated, professional staff is one of its key strengths. All personnel are also encouraged to develop their skills and knowledge, as their expertise is essential for Metla's prosperity.
Metla has over 300 researchers, two thirds holding a degree in forestry. Other fields of expertise include general and business economics, social sciences, natural sciences, and technology. More than half of the researchers hold a doctor's degree (Ph.D.).
Metla's professors are senior scientists responsible for developing their own disciplines or other fields of expertise.
In addition to research work, the researchers perform a number of expert and consultation assignments. The institute encourages its researchers to work as visiting scientists in other research organisations in Finland or abroad. Visiting scientists from other domestic and foreign research organisations and universities are welcome to participate in Metla's projects.
