In 2011, the Year of the Forest, the COST-ESF High-level Research Conference will contribute to understanding bio-energy drivers, options and impacts on forest growing, management and production of traditional goods and services in the future.
The scientific programme will focus on:
â€¢Obstacles to achieve the 20-20 goal
â€¢Role of forest biomass in comparison to other renewable forms of energy
â€¢Competition for land (forest vs agriculture)
â€¢Competition for biomass (against pulp and paper)
â€¢Potential emission reduction (expected effect of bio-energy)
â€¢Cascaded utilization of wood products
The conference will feature lectures by invited high-level speakers, short talks by young and early stage researchers, poster sessions and open discussion periods as well as a forward look panel discussion about future developments.
