Sustainable mobilisation of forest biomass

How to improve the sustainable mobilisation of biomass from our forests in the EU?


This Focus Group is ongoing.


Tasks:

  • Identify success and fail factors that stimulate or limit the sustainable mobilisation of forest biomass, and summarise how to address these factors and explore the role of innovation and knowledge exchange in addressing these fail factors.
  • Identify, describe with adequate examples and compare different means of improving the cooperation of small forest owners with regard to forest biomass. Provide examples of best practices, and also identify barriers to implementation.
  • Analyse supply and demand factors, and the means to provide a link between the two – for example electronic marketing tools.
  • Propose potential innovative actions to stimulate the knowledge and use of management practices and strategies in mobilising forest biomass.
  • Identify remaining research and innovation needs coming from practice associated to sustainable biomass mobilisation in forests, and provide ideas for Operational Groups and other innovative projects.
