Activities and expected outputs

Arranging an international conference and webinar series aiming to

  • structure current knowledge around the emphasis areas,
  • communicate this knowledge to stakeholders,
  • create a network which can disseminate such knowledge and
  • identify knowledge gaps and needed R&D activities

The network created through the conference and webinar activities and the co-operation within IUFRO will be used to publish a series of case studies of forest bioenergy reflecting diverse circumstances and diversity in approaches and effective solutions. The audience for the case studies, which cover technical, social, ecological and economic aspects of bioenergy projects from various parts of the world, includes the scientific community, landowners, the industry, NGOs, government agencies, policy-makers, research funding entities and other stakeholders.
