You probably mean: OK, another project that is no doubt good, but to read about... ooooh, soooo booooooring.
Therefore, here is what FORESDA is about in one simple sentence: FORESDA wants to show that it is possible to transform the forest-based industries (FBI) into attractive and sustainable industry sectors.
And how is this possible?
By developing innovative products and services that come as a result of the cooperation with another economy sectors, such as agriculture, construction, pharmaceutics, etc. This is the so-called cross-sectoral approach.
What is needed to achieve this goal?
FBIs need support for improving the innovation culture of their SMEs and this also means to strengthen collaboration among companies, faculties, and universities, research institutions, clusters etc. All those organizations and individuals who are dealing with innovations in one concrete region are part of the so-called regional innovation system.
Why are we actually doing this?
Forests are one of the greatest treasure of the mankind. By finding ways on how to use this resource more efficiently, we contribute to the meeting of "the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs", as famously phrased by the Brundtland Commission in 1987. This is the so-called sustainable development.
