ERA-NET call topics
The first ERA-NET on wood material science and engineering, WoodWisdom-Net started in 2004 with 12 partners from 5 countries and later, in 2006, expanded with 6 new partners (3 countries). The project was initiated as part of the European Commission’s FP6 ERA-NET Scheme whose aim was to step up cooperation between national research activities.
WoodWisdom-Net prepared and launched a joint European Research and Technical Development (RTD) programme with common funding and administration. This goal was reached in late 2006 when the first call of the joint transnational WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme (2006-11) with 17 projects, with a total volume of over 20 M€ was launched. These projects covered topics within the forest-based value chain from forestry, wood formation and logistics, through wood properties, fibre research, and including wood-based materials, products and use of wood in construction. Further development of the WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme together with the new partner countries in the consortium will be one of the core activities of WoodWisdom-Net 2.
