EFI Bioregions event: Digital solutions for forest pests and diseases

Since the launch of the EFI Bioregions Facility “Forestry Speed Dating” events in October 2021, every month dozens of forest stakeholders have participated in these virtual sessions to learn about the latest innovations and most advanced digital solutions for forest management. Thanks to the success and positive feedback of the initiative, these monthly events will continue in 2022 with the aim of connecting forestry innovators and potential users. These events are organised in collaboration with ROSEWOOD4.0.

After three monthly workshops to date, on 18 January 2022 EFI Bioregions Facility together with ROSEWOOD4.0 will once again organise a virtual Forestry Speed Dating session dedicated to “Digital solutions for forest pests and diseases“. This topic will undoubtedly be of interest to many forest owners and managers working towards healthier and more resilient forests.
