The renewed FTP Vision 2030

Horizons - Vision 2030 for the European Forest-based Sector -

Further to the launch of the first FTP Vision in 2005, more than 230 European forest sector-relevant research projects, with a total EU funding of € 717 million have been launched since 2007. The sector renewed its Vision 2030, to align itself with current trends and expectations for funding over the next budget framework period 2014-2020.

The vision supports the EU’s Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and identifies four Strategic Themes to address the ‘grand societal challenges’, as described by the European Commission, and drive towards the development of a biobased society: the forest-based sector in a biobased society, responsible management of forest resources, creating industrial leadership and fulfilling consumer needs.
