WW-NET+ Call for Proposals

Basic Information

The initiative is intended to facilitate collaboration between industry, SMEs, stakeholder associations, research organisations, leading-edge scientists from the wider range of disciplines covering wood material, construction, natural, biological, social, economic and other relevant sciences who will bring their broad expertise to support the transformation of the European forest-based sector and to secure its competitiveness. Importantly, the call will also aim to encourage and make best use of interdisciplinary, systems approaches, and improve the impact and integration of social research and economics in this area.

Aim of the joint call The overarching aim of this 4th call under the trans-national WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme is to support the innovative transformation of the European forest-based sector and to enable it to increase its resource efficiency and to develop an innovative products scope, while adapting to and mitigating the impacts of climate change and securing biodiversity. Attention should also be given to currently underused potential in the forest-based sector to develop novel ideas and create new markets, e.g. the valorisation and utilisation of hardwoods in Europe.
