Gum resin is a natural raw material that plays an important role in the bio-economy due to its multiple applications, but in the decade of the 1990s, European production almost stopped and the EU is highly dependent on imports of gum resin and its derivatives. Recently, a change in the global market situation allowed for a revival of resin production in the Iberian Peninsula but here is still much untapped potential in the Mediterranean. The focus of the iNET of Resins is to explore the existing research and innovation knowledge and the best practices across European gum resin value chain in order to deal with the main challenges that the sector is facing.
Objectives of this iNet:
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
