End-user access to European RTD for the forest and wood industries sector

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-2000-00608
Project type: TN (Thematic Network)
Starting date: 01-01-2001
Duration: 30 months
Total cost: 1,289,800 EUR
EC Contribution: 1,200,800 EUR
Scientific Officer: Ignacio SEOANE
Research topic: 5.3.2. Strategies for the sustainable and multipurpose utilisation of forest resources; the forestry-wood chain

Abstract:
The project will create a Thematic Network linking the leading European organisations supporting the forest and wood industries (FBIND) sector . The Network will collate, assess and organise all national and EU funded RTD pertaining to the sector and create a multi-lingual electronic mechanism whereby the results of this RTD are accessible to, and understood and used by the relevant SMEs that predominate in the sector. The Partners parent networks and extensive links with the Forest-Wood industry at European, national and branch levels will be mobilised to effect the development of a far-reaching dissemination and technology transfer process. The coalescing of the Partners networks will create an established vehicle for the creation of an electronic RTD community, dynamically linked to the forest-wood sector's industries.
