Dissemination

Here we will keep a log of the dissemination activities of the project. The aim of dissemination is to synthesize the project activities and results and maximize the impact in the target groups: forestry, architecture, engineering, timber specifiers.

WoodWisdom-Net logoThe Woodwisdom Net network is an important conduit for the dissemination of the progress of the project. The Fastforests project is funded though the WoodWisdom-Net programme, part of the ERA-NET Plus scheme. The overall scope of WoodWisdom-Net+ is to support the total transformation of the European forest-based industry 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 Woodwisdom network meets annually to keep programme participants up-to-date with projects.
