Research group

Our multidisciplinary research group works at the Natural Resources Institute Finland and the Tampere University. The group includes researchers from environmental sciences, microbiology, urban and landscape planning, architecture, medicine, and environmental psychology. 

We have 36 partners from different sectors of society, such as environmental companies, cities, housing service providers for special groups, foundations promoting well-being and environmental diversity, and those operating in the field of administration, such as ministries. These stakeholders enable the implementation of interventions and increase common understanding of the means and ways in which biodiversity can be added to urban areas. Partners play an important role in bringing new understanding and research-based practices to the attention of urban and environmental planning and construction, education, health sector, decision-makers, and residents.
