What and who is IN2WOOD?
IN2WOOD is a EU-funded network project. The 13 participating partners represent the wood & forest clusters in Slovakia (Baňská Bystrica), Ukraine (Carpathia), Italy (South Tyrol), Switzerland (Grisons), Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia) and Austria (Styria).
What are the main targets of IN2WOOD?
The formation of an European network of wood clusters integrating research, administration and business partners is the main issue of the IN2WOOD work plan. The partners exchange their knowledge, best practices and regional contact networks in order to shape strategic joint actions in relevant areas of forestry and wood industry. Actors representing the wood value added chain ranging from forestry to pellet production or multi-storey timber building manufacturers are integrated to develop effective and sustainable cooperation at all levels. Through the project’s mentoring process, the network has already expanded and established a number of new active contacts in South Eastern Europe. This networking process is open for anyone: if you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Financing and Duration of the Project
IN2WOOD is co-funded by the EU with 2.3 million Euro under the FP7 Capacities programme "Regions of Knowledge” and runs from January 2010 to June 2012.
