Take part in our Bioeconomy Dialogue: register here!


Join us on 29 November for the first Bioeconomy Dialogue devoted to Engineered wood products and wood construction in the bioeconomy: Opportunities and challenges for Southern Europe.

This dialogue offers the opportunity to strategically reflect on the trends in the European sawmill and wood construction sectors and the drivers behind them. It will address the following questions: can we expect a significant increase in wood construction in Southwest Europe? Is it possible to shift the construction sector towards local wood? Where are the barriers and opportunities? What forest, industry and research policies will make that possible?

Experts from research centres, institutions and key stakeholders of the wood sector will share their views and experience in an exciting programme (available in English and Spanish).

 

This event will be held in English and Spanish, and is organised in the framework of the Hub for Forests and Sustainability by Sant Pau Recinte Modernista and the European Forest Institute, with the support of Diputació de Barcelona and Generalitat de Catalunya.
