The aim of ForestValue is to comprise the joint implementation of transnational calls for proposals for research, development and innovation in the forest-based sector with a clear financial commitment from the participating national (or regional) research programmes and the EU.

ForestValue is to provide, through its close links to national programmes, a fast, easy and simple way to set up transnational projects. The principles of variable geometry (the call focusing on different topics and including different sets of funding organisations) have been tested in several earlier calls and will continue to be an integrative part of effective co-operation.
