Newborn EHIA seeks Timber Industry views on hardwood innovation and research
The European Hardwoods Innovation Alliance (EHIA) is seeking views on what innovation and research is needed for hardwoods in Europe.
Respondents to the online questionnaire - open until 13 October 2016 - can share their innovative ideas on a variety of themes that cover both forestry and wood-based value chains.
EHIA is promoted by InnovaWood and the European Forest Institute and aims to create a focused alliance dedicated to hardwood species as a complementary potential field for innovations.
The new organization will also coordinate research and educational projects and will create new qualified employment in smart rural regions within Europe. The initiative has been accepted already as a commitment under the European Innovation Partnership for Raw Materials (EIP RM – ID 669).
