WoodWisdom-Net+ Pacing Innovation in the Forest-Based Sector

Objective

The overall objective of the WoodWisdom-Net+ is to support the transformation of the European F-BI and sustainable forest management for increasing resource efficiency and adapting to and mitigating climate change effects. This will be achieved by integrating knowledge and technologies of large-scale industrial products and processes, as well as primary production.
The aim is to plan a single joint call for proposals for research, development and innovation in the forest sector with a clear financial commitment from the participating national (or regional) research programmes and the EU. The estimated total funding volume of the joint call is expected to ca. 30 MEUR (share of industry funding 5-10 MEUR).

The main approach in the WW-Net+ is the substitution of non-renewable resources (e.g. materials or fossil fuels), by renewable forest-based solutions to reduce carbon emissions and waste. The joint trans-national call will address the whole forest-based value chain in four areas. These are: 1) the sustainable management of forest resources through 2) their efficient utilisation in industrial processes to 3) value added products and 4) competitive customer solutions. The exact scope will be defined during the project.

WW-Net+ will base its research, development and innovation funding activities on the processes and experience developed during the preceding ERA-Nets towards streamlined and efficient processes. The preceding ERA-Nets WoodWisdom-Net (2004-08) and WoodWisdom-Net 2 (2009-12) form the transnational WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme (total funding volume of the launched 3 calls ca. 50 MEUR) which provides the planned ERA-NET Plus Action with a solid foundation. Looking to the future, the WW-Net+ will continue to improve the delivery of joint activities and has ambitious goals for funding trans-national research and offering access to the resources of other countries.
