We aim to promote the sustainable use of natural resources and contribute to the well-being of the environment, people and society.

The Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) is a research organisation operating under the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland. Luke’s task is to promote competitive business based on the sustainable use of renewable natural resources, as well as wellbeing and the vitality of the countryside.

Luke employs some 1,300 people, half of whom are researchers and the other half are specialists, employees who provide support for research, and managers. Men and women are represented equally. We operate in 24 locations in Finland and our headquarter is in Helsinki.

Luke resolves challenges in the sustainable and profitable use of renewable natural resources in four phenomenon-based research programmes. Every year, Luke has more than 700 research projects in progress, roughly 100 of which are EU projects. In 2021, Luke’s researchers published more than 700 peer-reviewed scientific publications. Research accounts for approximately 70 per cent of Luke’s activities.

In addition to research activities, Luke has statutory duties, and it compiles Finland’s official food and natural resources statistics.
