RoK-FOR - Sustainable Forest Management Providing Renewable Energy, Sustainable Construction and Bio-based Products
The project aimed to understand the nature of the wind damage risk to European forest, how this risk might change, the social, environmental and economic impacts of that change and the role policy instruments can play in reducing that risk and speeding up recovery following storm events.
The final results of the projects are available here: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/forests/fprotection.htm (last visited 27.7.2018)
The aim of the project was to develop an integrated, innovative pan-European research network, which contributed to the emerging European Research Area. Input from representatives of industries, end-users of research and other stakeholders was an integral part of its work. The project had the following general objectives:
XyloWeb - Communication autour des démarches prospectives sur le massif Landais (Communication about forecasting studies in Aquitaine Maritime pine forest)
The Xyloweb-project aimed to bring together information on ongoing forecasting activities in the maritime pine area of Aquitaine, France. The work was based on a forecasting exercise carried out by the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in 2010 following the storm Klaus and on the work carried out within the INTEGRAL-project which looked at the future oriented management of European forest landscapes.
One of the project’s main outcomes was a website demonstrating the benefit of forecasting activities.
