VTT's vision of life in the era of a bioeconomy in Finland in 2044
Date:5/15/2014

tically in the future. Information technology will also play a more significant role in the future. It will become key in making manufacturing, energy production and transport more efficient.

"The transition to a bioeconomy requires us to learn how to use our natural resources in a wise and sparing manner. The efficient industrial use of biomass does not solve all the problems and other sources of raw material are also needed. One of them is the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and combustion gas. However, we are still at the very early stages of this process", says Anne-Christine Ritschkoff, Executive Vice President of Strategic Research at VTT.

Helmi, the Anderson family and Jonas "Brad" Salmi in the era of a bioecenomy

The fictional characters of the VTT publication live in the era of a bioeconomy in 2044: Helmi lives in Taavetti in Eastern Finland with her family, the Anderson family live on the outskirts of the Helsinki metropolitan area, and international inventor Jonas "Brad" Salmi lives in Oulu.

Agriculture is booming in Finland because some of the traditional farming areas of the world have been destroyed as a result of various catastrophes. There is not enough work for everyone as robots are doing some of the work. Living conditions elsewhere in the world are deteriorating, and immigration to Finland is on the increase. Significant progress has been made in medical science and the onset of illnesses can be predicted based on the data on the individuals' vital functions. Medication is personalised. Sensors monitor the vital functions of individuals and send the data to doctors. People are still flying to their holiday destinations: bioenergy resources were introduced widely 20 years earlier and this has meant that the carbon footprint of air traffic is no longer an issue. Information technology is used to serve society in a variety of ways. 3D printing is an everyday thing. Food is almost entirely based on vegetables.
