South-Eastern Hub

The ROSEWOOD South-Eastern Europe Hub covers Croatia, Greece, Slovenia (consortium partner countries) and Bulgaria. All countries of the Hub are rich in natural resources especially forests, with great potential for supplying sustainable wood to Europe’s bioeconomy. Nevertheless, there are several challenges in the field of wood mobilisation regarding the implementation of new technologies for wood utilisation and the wood industry, the uptake of innovations and transfer of scientific knowledge into practice as well as regarding the adoption of the European regulatory framework and access to funding sources.
