Title: MENFRI network: Euro-Mediterranean innovation for forest development
Author: Doblas-Miranda, E.
Abstract: The European Commission poses that innovation in forestry must be directed to mitigate the effects of global change while guaranteeing the sustainable use of ecosystem goods and services. Mediterranean forestry could be then considered as a tool for development; traditional uses of forests could be sources of eco-innovation against forest abandonment, and landscape strategies and business could decrease forest intensification for a more sustainable forest use. The Mediterranean Network of Forestry Research and Innovation (MENFRI) aims to set the basis for this innovative Mediterranean forest management by gathering experts from the entire value chain in the forest sector, by provoking the exchange of knowledge through training courses and by the creation of this network itself. In order to reconcile environmental and business objectives in forestry, experts gathered by MENFRI propose to: bring the complete value chain as near as possible the source of raw materials, create useful research for innovation networks, implement multi-sectoral pilot studies, and valorise forest services and products.
