A group of 15 students from Bordeaux Sciences Agro, who specialize in forest management and wood supply logistics, took a study trip to Slovenia. They are currently working on the project CirculAlps, which seeks to improve transnational collaboration and strengthen the forestry industry in the Alpine region through bio-economy and the circular economy.
Because Slovenia is one of the most forested countries in Europe, the students decided to visit several Slovenian companies and research institutes in the wood and forestry sector to answer the question: “How can the integration of a circular bio-economy project boost the competition of Slovenia’s forestry-lumber industry?”
The InnoRenew CoE’s Dr Matthew Schwarzkopf and Dr Michael Burnard presented research topics of the institute and explained how the forestry-lumber industry in Slovenia works.
