ROSEWOOD4.0 - Sustainable wood for Europe

ROSEWOOD4.0 harnesses digital solutions and boosts knowledge transfer to connect multiple actors along the forest value chain to reinforce the sustainability of wood mobilisation in Europe. The ROSEWOOD4.0 project, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, builds on the ROSEWOOD network of regional hubs, extending this well-established network both in geographical reach and the breadth of tools and solutions shared with stakeholders across Europe.

ROSEWOOD4.0 focuses on digitalisation and digital tools for knowledge transfer, training and coaching, enabling practitioners to share knowhow with much wider impact. The project enhances the former ROSEWOOD EU Network to give more actors in the wood mobilisation value chain increased opportunities for sharing good practices in the field.

ROSEWOO4.0 closes this knowledge gap at grassroots level and upscale the transfer of innovation and business models throughout regions and beyond, sharing knowledge at interregional scale for the sustainable and economic development of the forest sector for the benefit of rural areas, communities and regions. The project works to four main objectives to achieve its aimsThese include:

  1. Enhancing and sustaining Wood Mobilisation Hubs as cooperation platforms and innovation networks in five main European regions;
  2. Transferring and communicating information and knowledge on best practices, innovations and research findings related to wood mobilisation and competitiveness;
  3. Identifying and developing cooperation and innovation between all actors and supporting the uptake and exploitation of existing best practices and innovations;
  4. Supporting the design of new business opportunities for sustainable wood mobilisation through capacity building, training and development of knowledge resources.

ROSEWOOD4.0 contributes to enhanced competitiveness of the forest industry and to vital development in rural areas within the European Bioeconomy by responding to the imminent need for broader sharing of ICT-driven solutions in forestry.
