Forestry Speed Dating
Bioregions’ Forestry Speed Dating events emerged to foster innovation in the regional forest bioeconomy. Forestry Speed Dating puts innovators in contact with potential partners and end-users, to speed up innovation and create new partnerships. Through a continuous series of speed dating workshops, and facilitation of meeting with innovators, you can find inspiration and explore new solutions towards a sustainable forest circular bioeconomy for your area.
How does it work?
The Forestry Speed Dating events follow different themes. Within each theme, the Bioregions Facility organises a number of Forestry Speed dating events with their own specific focus. During each Forestry Speed Dating event, two or three innovations are presented by their owners. These innovations can belong to companies, research projects or even government initiatives. After the presentations of the innovations, one breakout room per speaker is opened so that attendees can connect and pursue collaborations with the innovators.
Was an innovation or theme of your interest included in a past Forestry Speed Dating event but did you not attend? Do not worry! Every presented innovation is featured in a factsheet with the collaboration opportunities highlighted. Do you think you could be the potential partner the speaker was looking for? Then contact the innovator through the contact information included in the factsheets.
iWald is an application that supports forest owners’ decisions with regards to forest management.
