Networking and Integration of National Programmes in the Area of Wood Material Science and Engineering in the Forest-based Value Chains

The first ERA-NET on wood material science and engineering, WoodWisdom-Net started in 2004 with 12 partners from 5 countries. In 2006 the network expanded with 6 partners (3 new countries). As a main result, late 2006 the first joint Transnational Research Programme (2006-11) with 17 projects of a total volume of over 20 M€ was launched. The objective of WoodWisdom-Net 2 with 19 partners from 12 countries was to deepen and strengthen transnational cooperation based on experience and existing cooperation structures, procedures and mechanisms but also on variable geometry approach (organisations from new partner countries) for broadening the network activities and EU impact.
