Leitung: Prof. Dr. Max Krott

Beteiligte Personen: Michael Böcher

Förderer: European Science Foundation

Laufzeit: März 2006 - März 2010

Innovation policies as well as entrepreneurship related policies are a key pillar of the EU "Lisbon Strategy", the economic development policy of the EU endorsed in March 2000. In a forest policy context, the MCPFE (Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe) has recently adopted the Vienna Resolution on the "Economic Viability of Sustainable Forest Management" calling for the strengthening of innovation and entrepreneurship in this sector. The main objective of COST E51 is to develop knowledge that enables integration of innovation and development policies for a more effective and sustainable development of the forest sector.
