Solutions for Wood Mobilisation in Europe - Final Conference of the SIMWOOD Project


The EU research project SIMWOOD will present its findings of four years of region-based research action and trans-European cooperation at a final conference in Paris, France on 12-13 October 2017. The SIMWOOD project aims to increase the mobilisation of wood from forests and woodlands in Europe.

Regional, national and European stakeholders interested in wood mobilisation are invited to the conference ‘Solutions for Wood Mobilisation in Europe’ (SIMWOOD project final conference). The programme is designed to address both forest practitioners (forest managers, entrepreneurs, wood suppliers etc.) and policy-makers.

The project reaches out to stakeholders and regional initiatives with the aim of engaging and mobilising forest owners and practitioners, promoting collaborative forest management and ensuring sustainable forest functions.

Conference Programme:
• Lessons learned from the SIMWOOD pilot projects and regional learning labs
• Experiences shared by participating SMEs
• Demonstration of tools and products developed to support wood mobilisation
• Panel discussions with forest practitioners, policy makers and researchers

The deadline for registration is 31 July 2017.
