In view of the completion of the ROSEWOOD4.0 project in June, Session I in the morning will focus on its results and outcomes with special attention on innovation and digitisation of the forest sector to achieve sustainable forest value chains.

This session will present tools and methods to ensure the continuity and viability of initiatives and EU thematic networks such as ROSEWOOD4.0 in the long term. Representatives from Forest Europe, the EUFarmBook project and EFI Bioregions Facility will participate in the session to discuss the existing tools to sustain these networks. In addition, four success stories that exemplify the long-term success and sustainability of European projects will be presented.

  • Session III – Working groups: foster innovation towards a more sustainable forest sector – an open space market (15 June. 9:30 – 13:00 CEST)

On the second day in Session III, the ROSEWOOD4.0 organising committee will provide working spaces for those event participants who want to build international collaboration initiatives, formulate ideas for EU projects with other partners and explore synergies of work on common themes.
