Joint Call 2006-2011 (JC1)

The first joint call was launched 1. November 2006 based on the activities run by the WoodWisdom-Net ERA-NET project during the years 2004-2008. In the first stage, 74 proposals were submitted from which 45 were invited into the second stage of the evaluation. In the end, 17 projects were accepted for funding. The projects were started late 2007/ early 2008 and the last ones were ended in February 2011.

Below the projects listed under the call topic areas with a short project overview and a copy of the final report for each.
