Final conference of the EU project SIMWOOD

Paris (France). From October 12 to 13, 2017, the members of the EU research project SIMWOOD will present their findings of four years of region-based research action and trans-European cooperation at a final conference in Paris, France. The SIMWOOD project aims to increase the mobilisation of wood from forests and woodlands in Europe. The project reaches out to stakeholders and regional initiatives with the aim of engaging and mobilising forest owners and practitioners, promoting collaborative forest management and ensuring sustainable forest functions.

Europe has more than 117 million hectares of forest, but the sustainable utilisation especially in privately owned woods falls short of its potential. In response, the EU project SIMWOOD (Sustainable Innovative Mobilisation of Wood) was launched with the aim of promoting a more efficient use of the available supply of wood and bolster Europe's forestry and wood industry.

Special highlights for a wide-ranging, international audience

At the SIMWOOD final 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:

  • Lessons learned from the SIMWOOD pilot projects and regional learning labs
  • 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.

Regional, national and European stakeholders interested in wood mobilisation are very welcome to the SIMWOOD final conference. The programme is designed to address both forest practitioners (forest managers, entrepreneurs, wood suppliers etc.) and policy-makers.
