ROSEWOOD Best Practices & Innovations

For a better, more sustainable and competitive wood mobilisation in Europe

ROSEWOOD seeks to identify best practices and innovations in the domain of wood mobilisation.

What are best practices and innovations in wood mobilisation?
The main criteria in best practices ROSEWOOD is looking for is SUSTAINABILITY.
A best practice selected by ROSEWOOD is a new approach, innovative idea or product exemplifying that sustainable mobilisation and/or utilization of wood, which takes account of both economic and ecological factors likewise, is feasible.

The same applies for the innovations sought by ROSEWOOD. The kind of innovations ROSEWOOD seeks to promote encompass new instruments, models or approaches that provide an added benefit to wood mobilisation.    

A best practice or innovation could respond to a specific challenge of wood mobilisation, e.g. propose an interesting approach to activate unused wood resources or simply present a novel technology, e.g. a next generation digital GIS tools for wood stock monitoring that has not been widely introduced yet.
The ROSEWOOD aim is to develop a hands-on compendium of best practices and innovations, forestry and wood industry stakeholders can use in their work.

Follow our 'Best Practice of the Month' series, kicked-off in February 2019, to check out first results of the ROSEWOOD Best Practice and innovation screening. More under the ROSEWOOD news section.
Also, we will soon provide on this page a selection of best practices & innovations identified by ROSEWOOD.
