  1. Forest-Based Sector Technology Platform

  2. Technology Platform – A new tool For the 7th R&D Framework Programme, EU Commision has created a new tool, Technology Platform, characterised by • Shared vision • Long-term perspective (2030) • Major challenges

  3. Key deliverables of a Technology Platform • Vision document (stage 1) • Shared Vision • Key Challenges • Strategic Objectives • Strategic Research Agenda, including plan for funding (stage 2) • Implementation (stage 3)

  4. Technology Platforms – strong competition • Some 30 proposals for TP exist, all of them aiming at influencing the EU research programmes. • What is expected from the stakeholders? • Active participation • Commitment to the shared vision and support of the SRA and its implementation

  5. EU Framework Programmes (FP) for Research and Development • Run in five years period • Several instruments for project funding • Now the 6th R&D FP (2002-2006), 17 bill. euros • Next the 7th R&D FP (2007-2013), proposed budget 73 bill.euros

  6. Funding mechanisms FP72007-2013 73 B EUR Technology platforms (~ 32) TP National public funding Integrated projects TP Infrastructures FTP Basic research Industry funding TP etc. TP EIB, banks TP European ResearchCouncil TP Etc. Joint European Technology InitiativesJETI (5-6) Evaluation

  7. Forest-Based Sector Technology Platform (FTP) • CEI-Bois1, CEPF2 and CEPI3 have started a project to set up a Technology Platform for the forest-based sector. • Objectives of the project: • Organise the production of a vision document which includes e.g. common vision for the sector, challenges and strategic goals. • Mobilise key stakeholders to participate in the process. • Organise the development of the Strategic Research Agenda and other deliverables. • Planning the implementation stage. 1 European Confederation of Woodworking Industries 2 Confederation of European Forest Owners 3 Confederation of European Paper Industries

  9. FTP’s process schedule

  10. Why a technology platform? The sector • Is of a broad private and public interest. • Concerns all EU-countries. • Needs to interlink different parts of the forest-based sector. • Is characterised by long and complicated supply chains from tree to consumer. • Requires access to a multiplicity of competencies and experiences.

  11. FTP aims at • Meeting the multifunctional demands on forest resources and their sustainable management. • Strengthening competitiveness. • Strengthening position as the global technology leader. • Promoting sustainability - a competitive advantage for the forest-based sector. • Carrying out more efficient R&D.

  12. The European Forest-Based Sector Vision for 2030 The European forest-based sector plays a key role in a sustainable society. It comprises a competitive, knowledge-based industry that fosters the extended use of renewable forest resources. It strives to ensure its societal contribution in the context of a bio-based, customer-driven and globally competitive European economy.

  13. Strategic objectives of the FTP • Meeting the multifunctional demands on forest resources and their sustainable management. • Enhancing availability and use of forest bio-mass for products and energy. • Development of intelligent and efficient manufacturing processes, including reduced energy consumption. • Development of innovative products for changing markets and customer needs.

  14. Strategic objectives of the FTP • Establishing a more efficient innovation system, including a better-structured research community with higher efficiency. • Deepening the sector’s scientific basis, including taking advantage of emerging sciences. • Establishing education and training schemes that meet high requirements. • Improving communication with the public and policy makers.

  15. Key benefits of FTP • Engages all key stakeholders and provides a forum for public-private dialogue and partnership. • Facilitates targeted investments in research and development. • Mobilizes and focuses existing research and development capabilities, thereby fostering a more efficient approach to innovation. • Stimulates coordination of European and national research agendas. • Supports the ongoing development of a relevant knowledge base for the sector. • Contributes to the overall growth of the EU economy.

  16. Europe and FTP • Global strength – Europe in the lead • Political support necessary for FTP success • Improved cooperation between EU-countries • Coordination with national research agendas • Co-funding

Organisation High level group: • Björn Hägglund, chairman • Bo Borgström, CEI-Bois, chairman of the board • Giuseppe Fedrigoni, Cartiere Fedrigoni S.p.A • Tomasz Lucjan, Steico SA • Antti Sahi, MTK • Natalie Hufnagl, CEPF • Filip de Jaeger, CEI-Bois • Teresa Presas, CEPI • Lars Gädda, M-real • Yves Birot Advisory Committee: • Lars Gädda, M-real, chairman Scientific Council • Yves Birot, chairman Management • Claes-Göran Beckeman, SCA, project director • Kari Luukko, FFIF, project secretary

  19. High Level Group (HLG) • Decision body of the FTP • Steers the activities of the platform. • The HLG comprises industry representatives through the confederations, chairmen of the Advisory Committee and of the Scientific Council, and EC representatives as observers.

  20. Advisory Committee (AC) • Secure that the industrial stakeholders’ and forest owners’ views and needs are presented in the Vision document and Strategic research agenda in a meaningful way • Secure the interlink between national support groups and the project • Responsible for supervising and controlling the work of Project group • Reports to High level group

  21. Scientific Council (SC) • Links the platform to the research society at large. • Plays a key role in defining future challenges and establishing the Strategic Research Agenda. • It’s members’ competencies reflect the core sciences and technologies in the sector as well as enabling technologies.
