The first cross-cutting seminar of INCREDIBLE project, held 10 and 11 May, was dedicated to a presentation of successful initiatives capable of connecting the production of agricultural and forest products and the territory of origin.
When it comes to sustainable forest management, it is important to see the forest for more than just the trees. In a plenary session for the Sixth Mediterranean Forest Week (6MFW) in Lebanon from 1-5 April, the European Forest Institute Mediterranean Facility (EFIMED) focused on “Forest-based Solutions: Linking Non-Wood Forest Products (NWFP) with the Economy, Participatory Approaches”.
The INCREDIBLE project will be present at the 4th International Non-wood Forest Products (NWFPs) Symposium, organized by The Bursa Technical University Faculty of Forestry on October 4-6, 2018 at Bursa (Turkey) to create a scientific platform where the experience, recent researches, technologies will be shared and the future of the NWFPs will be discussed.
The advances in mechanization, genetic improvement and some silviculture techniques that were innovative at the time and are now considered almost universal, have allowed species such as poplar, eucalyptus or pine to become profitable forest products in Europe, and with a promising future in the context of the new bio-economy.
Over the last few decades, forestry activities have undergone considerable technical evolution based on the incorporation of specialized machinery and technology.
The INCREDIBLE project aims to show how Non-Wood Forest Products (NWFP) can play an important role in supporting sustainable forest management and rural development, by creating networks to share and exchange knowledge and expertise. ‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) promotes cross-sectoral collaboration and innovation to highlight the value and potential of NWFPs in the region.
‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) project receives funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement Nº 774632
