The EU-funded MENFRI project (Mediterranean Network of Forestry Research and Innovation) will hold its final conference on 16 November 2016 at the European Parliament in Brussels, under the theme “Jobs, Development, Social Inclusion and Climate Change Migration in the Mediterranean: The transformative power of the Forestry and Environmental sector”.
One of the results of the project is the establishment of the Mediterranean Network of Forest Research & Innovation. The Network has successfully expanded and has led to the formation of an external group of key actors from different sectors, all of which have joined forces and have created an independent service-hub called the Node.
The NODE – Node for Opportunities, Development and Environment – to be officially launched during the conference, uses a multidisciplinary approach combining policy advisory capacities with market opportunities, knowledge, training and people’s empowerment in order to provide tailored sustainable development solutions in the forestry and environmental sector. The Node stands ready to support EU and International Organisations so that they achieve their objectives.
Register here for the event. Registration will close Wednesday 9 November.
