The research program Tandem Forest Values was initiated in 2018, in order to strengthen bilateral collaboration between researchers within forestry and forest industry in Finland and in Sweden. The program resulted in 12 postdoctoral positions, selected from 72 high quality applications.

Finland and Sweden are jointly funding the second call with equal amounts. Funders include the Academy of Finland, the Swedish Research Council Formas, the Kempe Foundations, the Wallenberg Foundations, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland and the Ministry of the Environment of Finland.
