The Tarvaala Bioeconomy Campus is developing

The campus in Tarvaala, Saarijärvi, has provided agricultural education for nearly 150 years. The Tarvaala Campus is home to two bioeconomy training and research and development education institutions: the natural resources department of the Vocational Institute of Northern Central Finland (POKE) and the JAMK Institute of Bioeconomy.

A project to convert the Tarvaala Bioeconomy Campus into a bioeconomy expertise and business development hub was kick started in 2014.

The Bioeconomy Campus can serve as a concrete meeting place for industry entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, developers and students. Company and education requirements form the starting point of the area development – the goals are to illustrate the structures and functions of a future bioeconomy society and to offer the opportunity to test new solutions.
