The forest stands and the cork production are the two factors that most influence the cork value chain, a NWFP which has its origin in a multifunctional ecosystem that provides many products and services, but environmental and social changes now threaten cork oak forests. To mitigate these threats, it is necessary to address incoming challenges through innovation, knowledge but also improved profitability to sustain management.

There is an urgent need for new products, market segments and sources of revenue to take greater advantage of an NWFP whose market is now primarily focused on the manufacture of bottle stoppers, that accounts for almost 70% of the total value of the cork market.


El proyecto INCREDIBLE pretende mostrar cómo los productos forestales no maderables (PFNM) pueden desempeñar un papel importante en el apoyo a la gestión forestal sostenible y el desarrollo rural, mediante la creación de redes para compartir e intercambiar conocimientos y experiencia. INCREDIBLE (acrónimo de ‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’) promueve la colaboración e innovación intersectorial para destacar el valor y el potencial de los PFNM en la región.


El proyecto INCREDIBLE recibe fondos del programa Horizon 2020 de la Comisión Europea en el marco del acuerdo de subvención Nº 774.632.
