The Finnish Environment Institute (Syke) is a government research institute that offers strong expertise and independent information on global phenomena such as climate change, biodiversity loss, overconsumption, pollution and eutrophication. We enhance climate change mitigation and adaptation. We advance the transition to a sustainable circular economy. We support urban areas on their way to becoming forerunners of sustainability. We promote well-being through nature-based solutions and prevent biodiversity loss. We develop new approaches for reaching a good state of the seas and inland waters and achieving sustainable use of water resources. We currently employ some 700 professionals working in offices located in Helsinki, Oulu, Jyväskylä and Joensuu.
At the beginning of 2023, Syke had an organisation update. The aim of the new organisation is to improve Syke's ability to respond to challenges related to sustainability transformation. Syke’s departments involved in AquaINFRA are Quality of information and Marine and freshwater solutions. Our work will mostly involve WP5 Use cases (the Baltic Sea use case in particular), but we also participate in all other WPs.
