Forestry measures

Forestry within the EU research policy

The EU Forestry Strategy acknowledges that activities on forestry in Community RTD programmes help to promote the sustainable management and multifunctional role of forests and the sustainable and multipurpose utilisation of forest resources as well as to improve research potential and to encourage innovation.

The EU's 7th Research Framework Programme, covering 2007–2013, places greater emphasis than in the past on research relevant to the needs of European industry, to help it compete internationally and to develop its role as a world leader in certain sectors. The 'Forest-based Sector Technology Platform' provides a framework for stakeholders to establish the forest sector's research and development roadmap for the future.
