The project will fill the lack of knowledge that is an obstacle for using renewable raw materials in composite materials. • The project will stimulate cooperation between Finnish and Swedish R&D and industries in the Northern region. • The research is directed to developing ecological effective light weight composites as well as spreading knowledge to the companies. The number of companies in the project is seventeen. Among them are nine companies from Sweden and eight from Finland. • The aim is to get relevant data for biological based fibre available for composite industries. • Through the project expertise in the region will be strengthened through a closer cooperation between Finnish and Swedish researchers and companies. • Knowledge about biological based composite material will stimulate development of new products. • By using biological based components the possibilities of recycling is increasing. • By events arranged within the project network and partnership between Finnish and Swedish companies will establish. • Experience gained in this project will also stimulate to participating in other international projects.
