• "The "INCREDIBLE" project aims to show how Non-Wood Forest Products (NWFP) can
    play an important role to support sustainable forest management and rural development".
    Inazio Martínez de Arano. EFI, Consortium coordinator
  • "The Resins iNet seizes the opportunity offered by the current renaissance in natural resin extraction
    activity in the Mediterranean basin. In these times of open and mould-breaking innovation,
    this rebirth is anchored to old techniques of forest management, exploitation and transformation,
    offering the chance for actors in the Mediterranean natural resin value chain to take the lead in innovation
    and launch the sector into the future."
    Javier Calvo Simón. Cesefor, Spain, iNet facilitator.
  • "The Aromatic and Medicinal Plants iNet enhances the sector's competitiveness by establishing
    a collaborative and open innovation process. The iNet provides the opportunity for actors with
    complementary knowledge of the Aromatic and Medicinal Plants value chain to work together and exchange
    expertise and experience".
    Ibtissem Taghouti, INRGREF, Tunisia, iNet facilitator.
  • Wild mushrooms are the most widespread non-wood forest product in the Mediterranean
    basin and truffles provide the highest yield among them, significantly contributing to rural
    economies. The Wild Mushrooms & Truffles iNet brings together Mediterranean stakeholders
    across the mushroom-truffle value chain to boost the added value of such products, which is
    currently underestimated
    José Antonio Bonet. CTFC, Spain, iNet facilitator
  • "The Wild Nuts & Berries iNet looks to link existing networks in the Mediterranean, namely those on chestnuts
    and pine nuts. Actors in the sector are coming together in common efforts to face the major challenges
    for the value chains and their supply from forest systems: new exotic pests and diseases,
    ongoing climate change and weak market positions due to a lack of profiled product developments".
    Sven Mutke, INIA, Spain, iNet facilitator.

El proyecto INCREDIBLE presenta sus redes de productos forestales no maderables del Mediterráneo para fomentar la innovación en el intercambio de ciencia y práctica

Las “redes de innovación” (iNets) de Corcho, Resinas y Comestibles en la Cuenca Mediterránea" (INCREDIBLE) han sido creadas por el proyecto INCREDIBLE para establecer canales bidireccionales que conecten ciencia y práctica en la producción, procesamiento y comercio de los Productos Forestales No Madereros Mediterráneos (PFNM).

Para ello, INCREDIBLE se ha centrado en cinco grupos diferentes de PFNM: corcho, resinas, setas silvestres y trufas, frutos forestales y bayas silvestres y plantas aromáticas y medicinales.

Las redes de innovación de INCREDIBLE (iNet) reúnen a partes interesadas de todo el Mediterráneo, incluidos los países no pertenecientes a la UE.

Seeking profitable alternatives for the adaptation to climate change of forest productions

With the aim of searching for economically viable and profitable alternatives for forest owners, a conference was held on 9 October focusing on the climate change scenarios that are expected and how they will affect forest production.

The meeting, which took place in the LUCIA building on the Miguel Delibes campus of the University of Valladolid (UVa), also addressed in the context of climate change what options for adaptation can have forest stands and the role that owners and managers have to play in this process.
