Our latest public projects
In addition to working directly with businesses, Invenire has run or coordinated several interesting public projects on Åland over the past decade. Here’s a recap of the most recent ones.
nästa generation naturbeten
Pastures and natural pastures can only be maintained if they are used. Farmers need reasonable conditions, profitability, motivation and future visions in order to work long-term with pasture management.
Next generation natural pastures is a project owned by Miljöbyrån (Ålands landskapsregering), powered byInvenire Ab and financed by European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
water-smart food systemS
The project intends to create and test a transferable and replicable operating model for enhancing the water-smartness of food systems. The operating model is based on Finnish water expertise and knowhow, combined with understanding of food systems and regenerative farming. The operating model is test-driven in practice on the Åland Islands, with local food companies and farms.
This project is a collaboration between Invenire and Finnish Water Forum. It is funded by the European Union – NextGenerationEU.
The project aims to promote agricultural water management and biodiversity through collaboration, innovation and local implementation. The purpose of the project is to improve the awareness, the will and the practical conditions for farmers on Åland to make appropriate local efforts for water conservation and biodiversity.
The project is financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development through the Åland Government, run by Ålands Vatten Ab and coordinated by Invenire.
This project tested the use of activated limestone to bind phosphorus in nutrient-rich sediment samples from the Baltic Sea in a lab environment. Activated limestone was found to be effective in stopping phosphate release from these sediments, thereby potentially reducing eutrophication.
The project was financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Nordic Working Group for the Sea and Coast (NHK). The project partners were Stockholm University (Department of Ecology, Environment and Botany – DEEP), Levande Hav Ab, Ålands Fiskodlarförening r.f. and Invenire Ab.
Tillsammans för ett modernt träbyggande
The project was an acceleration program for climate-smart wood construction within the public sector. The aim of the project was to promote wood construction within the Åland region and its 16 municipalities through increased collaboration between different types of actors and knowledge dissemination – technical, environmental and economical.
The project was financed by the Finnish Ministry of Environment, run by Landskapets Fastighetsverk and coordinated by Invenire.
så in i vassen
The project was a collaboration between the fishery association at Brändö municipality and local farmers to harvest and utilise reed (Phragmites australis) in a regenerative way as a resource in the local nutrient cycle, while also improving biodiversity in coastal areas.
The project was financed by Lokalkraft Leader Åland, run by Brändö fishery association and coordinated by Invenire.
hungry for saltvik
The goal of the project was to improve nutrient circulation within Saltvik municipality area, retaining the nutrients that were already within the local food system. Another goal of the project was to activate and strengthen food citizenship.
The project’s main financer was the Finnish Ministry of Environment, with co-financing from Orkla Confectionery & Snacks Finland. The project was run and coordinated by Invenire.
