Mobiliser

The ‘SIMWOOD Information System’ is a web information service that will provide access to the main results of the SIMWOOD project.

The key components of the system are:

  • a knowledge base of wood mobilisation projects and other initiatives including:
    1. SIMWOOD model regions and pilot projects
    2. related projects and measures from across Europe
    3. maps and graphs showing wood mobilisation initiatives, facts and figures and relevant web-sites
  • regional scenarios – an interactive tool to assess the outputs of modelling exercises related to wood mobilisation scenarios in SIMWOOD model regions
  • a newsfeed on the latest happenings in biomass mobilisation from across the world

A prototype is under development and is being tested within the project. An operational system will be available to the public by September 2017.

The target audience of the SIMWOOD Information System are the advisers to forest owners – i.e. the forest owners associations, forestry professionals, and lobby groups in the forestry domain. Furthermore, the tool is intended to be of interest to regional stakeholders and policy-makers at different levels (EU, national, local), and researchers in the forestry domain.
