BioEcoNet kick-off meeting in Eberswalde, Germany

Viewing value creation in the bio-economy sector through the lens of sustainable forestry requires a multi-disciplinary approach. Six universities partner to implement the BioEcoNet project with staff representing diverse areas of expertise. These include forest ecology, resource and forest economics, forest policy and economics, biomass and forest-IT, bioenergy forest engineering, land use management and rural development. Experts on forest utilization, timber markets and entrepreneurship will ensure that private sector perspectives are included in the process.

Due to the balance of skills, expertise and experience, the consortium will be able to safeguard that all relevant issues related to sustainable forestry and bio-economy are sufficiently covered. At the same time, all partners are soundly based in their key theme and are firmly embedded within relevant research and professional networks.
