Since the launch of the EFI Bioregions Facility “Forestry Speed Dating” events in October 2021, every month dozens of forest stakeholders have participated in these virtual sessions to learn about the latest innovations and most advanced digital solutions for forest management. Thanks to the success and positive feedback of the initiative, these monthly events will continue in 2022 with the aim of connecting forestry innovators and potential users.
After three monthly workshops to date, on 18 January 2022 EFI Bioregions Facility will once again organise a virtual Forestry Speed Dating session dedicated to “Digital solutions for forest pests and diseases“. This topic will undoubtedly be of interest to many forest owners and managers working towards healthier and more resilient forests.
The next session will present 3 innovations in this field from the developers behind these digital solutions for forest pests and diseases. Participants will learn more about how these innovations can help them to detect damage in their forests before it is too late.
