The ForestValue Research Programme announces the upcoming call for joint European research projects with an indicative total public funding budget of over 7 million €. The call for proposals is expected to open in January 2021, selected projects are supposed to start late 2021/early 2022.
The ForestValue Joint Call 2 will support basic and applied research and is focussed on solutions for how forests and forest-based activities could best contribute to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. This co-funded joint transnational call will address the whole forest-based value chain and will produce knowledge to support the best possible use of forests and forest resources as well as to provide multiple benefits for society and the economy. The precise topics are to be defined by the participating funders; however, the topics will be broad and cross-cutting and the call will aim to encourage and make best use of cross-sectoral, coherent and integrated perspective (nexus approach).
At this stage, the 15 funding organisations/programme managers from 9 countries (Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden and Norway) have expressed a preliminary interest to participate in the call.
The full call information package will be published in January 2021.
