The FTP's Innovation Task Force (ITF) has been preparing a report on innovation in the forest-based sector, in terms of present situation and future vision. Apart from the report, the ITF will prepare a PowerPoint presentation of innovation cases, as well as an interactive exercise package.
All outputs, to be finalised by June 2009, will be disseminated to relevant stakeholders, with industry and forest owners as a key target groups, supplemented by the research community, policy-makers and funding agencies. The outputs will be available and presented, for example, at key events such as the upcoming FTP Innovation Seminar in Vienna (June 18-19, 2009), organised in conjunction with the Schweighofer Prize ceremony, and the FTP Conference in Stockholm (November 9-11, 2009).
The ITF is very interested in receiving more good examples of innovation in the forest-based sector. Information on examples can be submitted to Victoria Lerma (email@example.com) using this form. Deadline for submitting information is April 28, 2009.
