ForestValue Outreach Seminar: Innovative Forest-Based Bioeconomy For The Future
The international workshop “Innovative Forest-Based Bioeconomy for the Future” provides a platform for all initiatives engaged in forest-based Bioeconomy in Europe and South/Central America. Information exchange on current research (funding) activities and as excellent networking opportunities between scientists, funders, policy makers as well as other initiatives will create new opportunities for cooperation and joint funding between Europe and South/Central America in the field of forest-based Bioeconomy. Cordially invited to this 2-day workshop are European and Central/South American Ministries, funding agencies and initiatives which are interested in a joint funding of R&D projects in the field of forestry and sustainable use of wood.
The workshop is organised in the frame of the H2020 project ForestValue. The overall objective of the ERA-NET Cofund Action “ForestValue – Innovating the forest-based Bioeconomy” is to promote increased innovation and competitiveness of the forest-based sector in Europe and support its transformation from a resource-intensive to a knowledge-intensive, productive, resource-efficient and resilient sector. Sustainability and modernisation of forestry systems and downstream value chains including innovative business concepts and production technologies will be needed to develop the forestry sector and the European Bioeconomy, of which forestry accounts for a large share. The consortium consists of 30 partners representing different programmes in the Bioeconomy funding sector, coming from different regions and countries inside/outside Europe.
The seminar is free of charge including materials, admission to all sessions, coffee/tea during breaks and lunches.
