ForestValue ERA-Net has recently published the monograph publication on the impact of EU collaboration in the forest based sector, entitled From wood wisdom to wood values and beyond. This document provides an overview on the impact of EU collaboration in the forest based sector, in the framework of the ERA-Net projects that have taken place over the past two decades under the EU Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation funding.
This publication brings together in one place information already published in various online sources. A significant part of it is devoted to brief presentations of all research projects funded under the two ForestValue calls for proposals. The icing on the cake, so to speak, are the contributions from eminent experts and coordinators of past and current projects who have been invited to share their experiences and expert opinions not only on the achievements of individual transnational project collaborations, but also on the impacts achieved on the development of research and innovation in the forest based sector, on societal and bioeconomic development, and on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The ForestValue, ERA-Net Cofunded project (H2020) will come to a conclusion at the end of March 2023, after 66 months of implementation. The project builds on previous participation in several ERA-Net projects from forest-based sector and successfully continues as ForestValue2, a CSA project funded under the Widening sub-programme within Horizon Europe, from January 2023.
