The mission of the NSERC VCO Network is to improve the Canadian forest industry competitiveness through forest and business innovation by training the best highly qualified personnel in the emerging field of value chain modelling and by providing analysis tools and decision support for optimization of the modern forest bioeconomy networks.

By forest bioeconomy network, we mean the entire network of activities and processes from the tree through to the consumers of conventional forest products, new value-added products, new fibre products and new biochemical and biofuel products.

Through its interdisciplinary research program and its unique research environment, the NSERC VCO network contributes to the well-being of Canadians, its forest sector as well as to world science and engineering knowledge.
