The overarching aim of this joint transnational call is to support projects that will produce knowledge to promote the best possible use of forests and forest resources for the benefit of society on its way to a climate-neutral circular economy and sustainable society.
The participating funders (15 funders from 10 countries) have decided that the call will address the whole forest-based value chain in the following three areas:
- Sustainable and multifunctional use and management of forests, to maximize their contribution to all Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
- Building with wood from various perspectives
- Analysis of benefits, synergies and trade-offs in the use of forest biomass
German applicants may apply for BMEL funding via FNR only within areas 1 and 2.
The call office for this joint call is comprised of ForestValue Coordinator MMM (Finland) and FNR (Germany).
