Wood mobilisation conference Paris, 12 – 13 October 2017

Regional, national and European stakeholders interested in wood mobilisation are invited to the conference ‘Solutions for Wood Mobilisation in Europe’ (SIMWOOD project final conference). The programme is designed to address both forest practitioners (forest managers, entrepreneurs, wood suppliers etc.) and policy-makers. From October 12 to 13, 2017, the members of the EU research project SIMWOOD will present their findings of four years of region-based research action and trans-European cooperation at a final conference in Paris, France. Participation is open to everyone, costs are 110 Euro p.p. 
The SIMWOOD project aims to increase the mobilisation of wood from forests and woodlands in Europe. The project reaches out to stakeholders and regional initiatives with the aim of engaging and mobilising forest owners and practitioners, promoting collaborative forest management and ensuring sustainable forest functions. 
For the Netherlands, Wageningen Environmental Research (Alterra) and BTG take part in the SIMWOOD project. The combined provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel are one of the 14 model regions studied in the project.
