In the framework of the ForestValue project this event is jointly organised by SGCTelP (Secretaría de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación Productiva de la Nación; Argentina) and FNR (Agency for Renewable Resources; Germany).

Background: The workshop is organised in the frame of the H2020 project ForestValue. The overall objective of the ERA-NET Cofund Action “ForestValue – Innovating the forest-based Bioeconomy” is to promote increased innovation and competitiveness of the forest-based sector in Europe and support its transformation from a resource-intensive to a knowledgeintensive, productive, resource-efficient and resilient sector. Sustainability and modernisation of forestry systems and downstream value chains including innovative business concepts and production technologies will be needed to develop the forestry sector and the European Bioeconomy, of which forestry accounts for a large share. The consortium consists of 30 partners representing different programmes in the Bioeconomy funding sector, coming from different regions and countries inside/outside Europe.
