The 3rd Joint Call for Proposals of the WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme was closed on March 31, 2011 (the original call text available as pdf). The call “Sustainable forest management and optimised use of lignocellulosic resources – Bridging gaps between research disciplines, producers, consumers and society” was a joint call together with the ERA-NET Bioenergy, and it generated 81 proposals of which 13 projects were selected for funding. The projects were started late 2011/ early 2012 and they will end by the end of the year 2014.
Learn more about the projects and their final results in the online report, published in August 2015 (pdf).
