During the conference, the partners (11 SMEs, 15 research organisations, JRC and BayFOR) will present their research results and discuss solutions for wood mobilisation in Europe. Special highlights are:

  • Experiences shared by participating SMEs
  • Demonstration of tools and products developed to support wood mobilisation
  • Panel discussions with forest practitioners, policy makers and researchers

Presentations and discussions will be delivered in English. However, the diversity of the partners involved in SIMWOOD will make it possible to discuss individual results and experiences in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese etc.  The programme is designed to address both forest practitioners (forest managers, entrepreneurs, wood suppliers etc.) and policy-makers.
