ROSEWOOD is a European Horizon 2020 project dedicated to Sustainable Wood Mobilisation which ran from 1 February 2018 to 31 January 2020.
ROSEWOOD built a trans-European network for the transfer of best practices & innovations in sustainable wood mobilisation, establishing four regional hubs for North, South, Central and Eastern Europe.
ROSEWOOD collected over 100 Best Practices and 30 Innovation cases that propose exemplary solutions to the sector’s challenges, from small owner activation to increasing forest biodiversity and resilience.
ROSEWOOD MAP VIEWER
The ROSEWOOD Map Viewer details over 100 Best Practices and 30 Innovation case which were collected
by project partners from ten European countires over the course of the project.
Among the cases featured are exemplary products, business concepts and ideas from the entire wood value chain, from novel services to digitalise forest management to the innovative re-utilisation of used wood for new window frames.
The Map Viewer provides a platform for knowledge exchange and dissemination, serving the forestry and wood community. Forestry experts, practitioners, regional developers and forest owners benefit from the broad range of know-how and ideas accumulated. The tool is one result of the ROSEWOOD Network’s mission to advance sustainable wood mobilisation in Europe by making available existing expertise, bridging knowledge gaps and facilitating technology transfer among European regions.
ROSEWOOD REGIONAL ROADMAPS
The Best Practices and Innovations included in the ROSEWOOD Map Viewer were identified during a careful selection and review process, involving more than 74 experts from the forestry and wood industries.
The entire process and notably the criteria, which formed the basis for selection, are described in detail in the Interregional Roadmaps for Sustainable Wood Mobilisation.
The roadmaps outline strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities in sustainable wood mobilisation for each region of the ROSEWOOD Hubs – South, East, Central and North Europe – with recommendations on transferable practices to mitigate negative trends or sustain and boost key assets.
ROSEWOOD project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation
programme under grant agreement No. 776754
