Forest bioeconomy is one of the main topics of the EFIMED newsletter this October. The autumn season has begun with many initiatives linking non-wood forest products, with new business models, the development of new technologies and an approach that looks towards forest bioeconomy as a key player in the green transition of EU countries and regional economies.
In this sense, this month’s newsletter proposes different news, events and publications which analyse this question in depth: What role does the forest-based economy in Europe have now and will have in the future? How is it perceived by the public? How can we balance the new green economy and forestry with the protection of biodiversity?
From EFI’s Mediterranean Facility we encourage you to find the answers to some of these questions by checking out the news items, publications and events that make up this month’s issue, such as the top story about the IdiForest cross-cutting seminar, EFI’s third publication in the Knowledge to Action series, the seminar organised by EFI’s Bioregions Facility during this year’s European Week of Regions and Cities, or the upcoming Integrate Network event supported by EFI.
As ever, this edition includes calls, upcoming events and publications from all over the Mediterranean, as well as items of interest from elsewhere.
