ROSEWOOD4.0 is designed to enhance and enlarge the well-established ROSEWOOD network connecting actors of the wood mobilisation value-chain starting from forest owners to relevant regional authorities up to forestry and wood-based industries, to address and find answers for the main challenges in the forestry domain, especially the sustainable wood mobilisation.
ROSEWOOD4.0 focuses on tailored (user- and region-specific) transfer of know-how and information that enables and supports stakeholders of the wood value-chain to exploit innovations and best-practices and facilitate the capture of innovative ideas enhancing the development of the field.
Twenty one organization from 18 European countries are involved in the project.
ROSEWOOD4.0, by building on ROSEWOOD results, aims also to provide practitioners with development skills (educational and entrepreneurial) and facilitate organisational innovations leading to novel exploitation actions leveraging the uptake of new ideas and Best Practices in daily business.
ROSEWOOD4.0 addresses ‘digitalisation’ as transversal theme by developing digital dissemination and trainings tools supporting practitioners to implement best practices (platforms, trainings, webinars, practice abstracts, operational groups, etc.) but also aiming at connecting stakeholders in an open-innovation environment. These actions will contribute to an economically viable and sustainable development in rural areas towards the enhancement of the EU Bioeconomy.
The project’s co-ordination and support actions are implemented via Wood Mobilisation Regional Hubs located within 5 communities across Europe providing greater opportunities for forestry and wood-using industries to align their activities with local and regional development plans.
Five Regional Wood Mobilisation Hubs connect multiple actors along the forest value chain to reinforce the sustainability of wood mobilization in Europe:
Finland, Sweden, Norway, Baltic countries, Denmark
Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Austria
Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine
Spain, Italy, Portugal, South of France
Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Slovenia
HUB OBJECTIVES AND ACTIVITIES
• Grouped geographically and with common conditions
• Share best practices and innovations at regional scale
• Inter-hub exchange and learning at European scale
THIS ACTION IS
- especially reinforcing and widening the links with the East-European regions by creating a new Eastern Hub and inviting new countries, and
- putting a new focus on digital solutions, tools, and corresponding knowledge transfer actions boosting the sustainability of wood mobilisation solutions in Europe.
