The project Regional sustainability – ecosystem services and environmental technology (REGSUS) addresses the use of intelligent technology in the utilization of ecosystem services. The main focus is to study coupled human-environment systems and ponder how they may function in generating regional sustainability for instance in terms of managing the environmental load of agriculture.

The three-year project was launched on January 1, 2010. The researcher in charge is Dr., Adjunct Professor Matti Kamppinen at the University of Turku School of History, Cultural Research and Art Studies, Department of Comparative Religion. The project is conducted in cooperation with the MTT Agrifood Research Finland, and it is funded by the Academy of Finland. The project REGSUS builds on the former project CORECO funded by the Academy of Finland and carried out in 2006–2008.
