4th WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme Seminar and Final Seminar of the ERA-NET Bioenergy call on Short Rotation Coppice
07.02.2012 - 08.02.2012 Helsinki, Finland
This event will be the 4th in a series of programme seminars that started with the Opening Seminar of the WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme in February 2008 in Berlin.
In 2006 the ERA-Net WoodWisdom-Net initiated the joint transnational WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme. Resulting from the first two joint calls in 2006 and 2009, in total 26 transnational research projects, amounting to ca. 30M€, have been jointly funded by the WoodWisdom-Net partners so far.
For this seminar, and in order to achieve an even wider outreach, WoodWisdom-Net joins forces with the ERA-NET Bioenergy. ERA-NET Bioenergy has implemented 5 joint calls so far, and this event will involve the final seminar of its 3rd joint call, which focused on Short Rotation Coppice.
This public seminar will bring together researchers and stakeholders from industry, academia and policy-making organisations in the wood-based sector. It will be the:
Mid-term seminar of the of the 2nd Joint Call for Proposals (2009),
Opening seminar of the Joint Call for Proposals (2010) of the European Research Area Networks (ERA-Nets) WoodWisdom-Net 2 and ERA-NET Bioenergy, and
Final seminar of the Joint Call on Short Rotation Coppice (2008) within the framework of ERA-NET Bioenergy.
The objectives of the seminar will be to discuss the results from the projects, to facilitate information exchange and networking between the projects and their stakeholders and to gain feedback and ideas for the further development of the WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme and the ERA-NET Bioenergy.
