FSCN Research Centre

FSCN Research Centre at Mid Sweden University carries out research that supports the development of forest-based industries and new opportunities for forest-based biomaterials

Fibre technology, cellulosic materials and functional surfaces for bioeconomy and the region

Our research is developed in close collaboration with the Swedish forest industry and their suppliers, as well as other materials, chemicals, transport and energy sectors. Our aim is to increase industry profitability by improving resource and process efficiency and to support the development of new bio-based products in different sectors. The underlying goal for all of our research is increased resource efficiency, environmental friendliness and circularity in the industrial ecosystem of the region.

FSCN's staff consists of over 60 researchers in seven research groups.

FSCN together with research centres STC and Sports Tech form a Research Environment for Transformative Technologies. Our shared goal is to support the transformation of the industrial ecosystem through bioeconomy and digitalisation. Transformative Technologies is responsible for one third of all research at Mid Sweden University.
