WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme Call Text Published!

The WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme announces the upcoming call for joint European research projects. The indicative total available budget amounts to 24.000.000,00 € (national public funding including EC top-up funding of 8 M€). The total call volume with industrial co-funding is estimated to be up to ca. 30 M€. The call for pre-proposals will be opened in February 2013 with a closing date for pre-proposals on 30 April. 

The overarching aim of this 4th call under the trans-national WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme is to support the total transformation of the European F-BI and sustainable forest management to enable it to increase resource efficiency and develop a totally new products scope, while adapting to and mitigating the impacts of climate change.

The main approach in WW-Net+ is the substitution of non-renewable resources (e.g. materials or fossil fuels), by renewable forest-based solutions to reduce carbon emissions and waste. The joint trans-national call will address the whole forest-based value chain in four areas. These are: 1) the sustainable management of forest resources through 2) their efficient utilisation in industrial processes to 3) value added products and 4) competitive customer solutions. The exact scope of the call is currently being designed via stakeholder consultation and expert workshops across Europe.

The funders are particularly keen to encourage innovative trans-national proposals from multidisciplinary groups of researchers with optimal combinations of expertise to address the call topic areas. The participation of commercial and industrial partners – especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) – is strongly recommended to ensure the relevance of the research to technological development and to the needs of society.
