Non-wood products - an opportunity for bioeconomy?

 

The Joensuu Forestry Networking Week (JFNW) invites young and experienced scientists, professionals, policy makers, decision takers, and other stakeholders to discuss non-wood products and bioeconomy issues in Joensuu, Finland on 2-4 September 2014. European forests and the forest-based sector play an increasingly important role in fostering smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, especially in the context of Europe 2020 Strategy. In the past, this sector has mainly been built around wood based products, while other goods, like non-wood forest products (NWFP) have not played a very prominent role. To unlock its potential the NWFP sector requires knowledge and tools to optimise the sustainable provision and profitability of NWFP and better understanding of the NWFP market potentials and of the role of innovation processes for new products and services. The objective of the JFNW2014 is to provide the participants with a broad and complete understanding of the current situation of the NWFP sector in Europe. Furthermore, through discussions, interaction with stakeholders and working groups the participants will develop recommendations about the actions needed to unlock the potential of the NWFP sector, and making it a significant part the European bio-economy. Registration fee is 100 EUR. Information with tentative programme and instructions for pre-registration (deadline 30 April), is available in the event website: http://www.efi.int/portal/news___events/events/jfnw2014/. The registration fee of max. 3 students will be waived. For further information, please contact: Robert Mavsar, EFI (robert.mavsar(at)efi.int) or Katriina Pajari, EFI (katriina.pajari(at)efi.int)

Upcoming Events

Registration for GLF Accra is now open

This calendar is based on information provided by COMIFAC and the Franco-German support office is considered a complementary event schedule to the official calendar posted on COMIFAC's website. (http://www.comifac.org/events). It offers a broad overview of international and regional events that are directly linked to CBFP's objectives: major conferences and meetings, workshops and training sessions and other activities scheduled by CBFP Facilitation and its member organisations. 

Our choice is by no means exhaustive and depends largely on our partners' notice. Every partner organisation is thus welcome to contribute to a rich variety of posted events and to share its schedule with CBFP's Facilitation and the other members! We may also, upon request, forward your input to the COMIFAC webmaster.
