ForestValue2 (CSA project, Horizon Europe GA no. 101094340) project is the second phase of the ForestValue Action and has recently been launched. One of the first activities will be the implementation of a joint transnational call which has an indicative total public funding of 7 million euros. A pre-announcement of a ForestValue2 joint call for proposals in 2023 has already been published.
The ForestValue2 Joint Call in 2023 – funded by national funding agencies – will aim to support transnational collaborative R&I projects that 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 upcoming Projects are supposed to start in the first half of 2024 and the call is scheduled to open on 2 May 2023.

ForestValue was conceived as a European network of public funding organisations supporting and increasing coordination and alignment of national and regional funding programmes on research and innovation related to forest-based bioeconomy to strengthen the European Research Area and to support the European Green Deal.
The first phase of the ForestValue Action (ERA-Net Cofund, Horizon 2020 GA no. 773324) has been running since October 2017 until March 2023, with 30 partners representing different programmes in the bioeconomy funding sector, coming from different regions and countries inside/outside Europe.

As mentioned above, ForestValue2 has just kicked-off, and will run from January 2023 until December 2027. For more information, please see Cordis.
