Cork is synonymous of many things: incredible raw material, bioeconomy, circular economy, rural economy, agroforestry, ecosystem services, etc. Despite all the success factors there are also many threats and challenges that must be tackled.
The iNet Cork Scoping Seminar is an opportunity for cork sector stakeholders to join and participate in the design of the iNet Cork, which will be consolidated through collaborative work over the next three years and beyond.
This is an international meeting that will gather the main members of the cork sector coming from Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and other Mediterranean countries.
During the working sessions of the Cork iNet Scoping Seminar, the innovation needs of the sector will be discussed among the stakeholder’s present at the event, in order to establish the roadmap for cork under the INCREDIBLE project. The programme of the seminar can be found here.
