Aim of the joint call The topics of the planned ForestValue joint call will contribute to transforming the global economy from a dependence on fossil and non-renewable raw materials to a sustainable “bio-based economy”. The co-funded joint transnational call will address the whole forest-based value chain in two areas: 1) Innovative sustainable management of multifunctional forests 2) Innovative industrial production and processing technologies, products, concepts and services For focal areas for each of the themes, please see the call text.
