BioMonitor addresses the information gap in bioeconomy research by re-structuring its existing data and modelling framework. The ultimate goal of the project is to get a clearer picture of how bioeconomy affects our lives.
LULUCF support - Technical Support for capacity building in Member States to implement Forest Reference Levels and improvements of greenhouse gas inventories
The aim of the project is to provide bilateral technical support to specific Member States in the preparation of the national forest action plans and forest reference levels. Through a capacity building objective, EFI will provide technical support and help two Member States to identify technical solutions and practical approaches that they can use to develop their FRLs, as well as help to strengthen the capacity within the Member States for undertaking the requirements of the new Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) Regulation.
S2BIOM - Delivery of sustainable supply of non-food biomass to support a “resource-efficient” Bioeconomy in Europe
The main aim of this project was to support the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstock at local, regional and pan European level through developing strategies, and roadmaps that will be informed by a “computerized and easy to use” toolset (and respective databases) with updated harmonized datasets at local, regional, national and pan European level for EU27, western Balkans, Turkey and Ukraine.
SAFARI is a three-year project aiming to identify how a holistic Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) concept can interlink and support REDD+ and FLEGT implementation, to analyze their current and possible future impacts, foster their operability on all levels and to demonstrate the multiple benefits of SFM.
INFRES – Innovative and effective technology and logistics for forest residual biomass supply in the EU
"We keep EU's forest energy promises"
INFRES aimed to accelerate the technological development and open new paths to EU’s renewable targets by producing research based knowledge, technological solutions and service innovations for forest residue feedstock supply. The project aimed at high efficiency and precise deliveries of woody feedstock to heat, power and biorefining industries by:
The objective of the Global Timber Tracking Network (GTTN) is to promote the operationalization of innovative tools for wood identification and origin determination to verify trade claims, to assist the fight against illegal logging and related trade around the globe.
Resulting from the collaboration between FAO and EFI, the first voluntary guidelines for forest concessions in the tropics have been published. The guidelines help to make concessions more transparent, accountable and inclusive - all for the benefit of some of the poorest and most isolated communities in the world.
The multi-disciplinary project aims at improving the resource efficiency and climate neutrality of forestry and to facilitate the adaptation of the forest-based sector to the changes in the operating environment.
Data-driven knowledge-based revolution of the European forest sector TECH4EFFECT focuses on increasing access to wood resources through more efficient silviculture and a better understanding of the business models in the procurement of forest operation services.
