Inform-Prioritize-Collaborate:
Cooperation of regions on innovation in forest management, use of wood and forest-related services

The event is a following-up of the workshop on regional cooperation for innovation in the EU forestry sector held on 20 May 2014. This initiative resulted in four main priorities for innovation in forestry:

  1. Managing Impacts related to Climate Change
  2. Supporting Wood and Biomass Mobilization
  3. Supporting the Provision of Ecosystem Services
  4. Improving Sustainable Forest Management Approaches and Tools.

It was also the chance for potential stakeholders to connect around concrete actions which could be supported by EU funding programmes.

Now that most rural development programmes have been submitted, it is time to show what regions are planning or already implementing, to inspire other territories to make use of the available measures (particularly the setting up of EIP AGRI Operational Groups) and to establish cross-border cooperation, not neglecting other relevant tools (Horizon 2020, COSME, LIFE+, INTERREG, other national/regional funding instruments).

Starting from the four priorities defined during the 2014 edition, this second workshop will focus on practical ideas and cases on tackling forest-related challenges through innovation and cross sectorial collaboration:

  • which can be supported as EIP AGRI Operational Groups under the 2014-2020 Rural Development Programmes;
  • or which can be supported by other relevant programmes (Horizon 2020, COSME, LIFE, INTERREG).

The event will provide an opportunity to bring together potential stakeholders to improve their project ideas and to help Managing Authorities of Rural Development Programmes in better targeting their priorities when implementing their measures to support innovation in forestry.

Ensure your voice is heard and your views shared by the relevant EU and regional stakeholders – help us to deliver an innovative forest-based bio-economy!
