HAMK’s long tradition as an education institution of natural resources combined with skills in bio-refining processes, food engineering and cleantech gives a solid background for high-level applied research in bioeconomy. The research unit operates on five campuses: Lepaa Campus, horticulture; Evo Campus, forestry; Mustiala Campus, agriculture; Forssa Campus, cleantech and sustainable development; Hämeenlinna Campus, bioprocess technology.

The following research groups are part of the Bioeconomy Research Unit:

The groups combine research competence with practical skills in authentic learning environments. Like circular and bioeconomy, the groups are multi-disciplinary. Existing business, research institutes and university networks are utilised and the research projects are mirrored in regional development projects. International expertise is developed through strategic partners and other strong links. ​
