The Resins iNet is organising a new Science to Practice event addressed to stakeholders in the resin sector, forest owners and managers, technicians, resin tappers, industry, researchers. Due to COVID-19 this meeting will be held online on 16th December (15:00-17:30 h CET).
The aim of this webinar (which will be conducted mainly in Spanish) is to discuss what information can be collected from the resin sector in a simple, reliable and harmonizable way to feed a sectoral observatory. At the same time it aims to identify the possible sources of information, the procedures for collecting it and those responsible for processing, harmonising and publishing it.
The event also aims to set up a group of experts working together on a common protocol to integrate data on resin activity and production through an information system to the Spanish and Portuguese national forest inventories or forest statistics, so that they can serve as a useful management and planning tool for the sector.
The conference will provide information and a space for reflection and discussion on the viability of one or another data collection model. Finally, the conference will present two initiatives currently underway to structure the sector: the European Network of Resin Regions and the ResinLab testing network, which can create synergies with the observatory or information system.
