Looking ahead to a circular European bioeconomy

Canadian Forestry Events - Mon, 2017-10-16 07:53
As the EU is just about to finish its review of the current Bioeocnomy Strategy and decide on updating it in 2018, this ThinkForest seminar will provide insights why it is important to merge the bioeconomy and circular economy concepts, and what are the priority issues for a new circular bioeocnomy strategy. In the seminar, EFI will publish a new strategic report on ?Leading the way to a European circular bioeconomy strategy?. We will be discussing the questions of: Why do we need a European circular economy strategy? What should its main ingredients be? What is the outlook for a sustainable European forest bioeconomy? What bioeconomy gaps do we still need to fill Our speakers include John Bell, Director of Bioeconomy, DG Research and Innovation, European Commission Cecil Konijnendijk van den Bosch, Professor, University of British Columbia Morning se Cecil Konijnendijk van den Bosch, Professor, University of British Columbia Georg Winkel, Head EFI Resilience Programme The event has two sessions: morning session at 9:30?12:00 focuses on A new strategy for a circular European bioeconomy and the afternoon session at 13:00-16:30 on the Outlook for a circular European bioeconomy.

Workshop on Tree Resistance to Insects & Diseases: Putting Promise into Practice

Canadian Forestry Events - Thu, 2017-08-03 03:55
From 2018-08-05 to 2018-08-10, Mt. Sterling, Ohio, United States, IUFRO Unit(s) involved: 2.02.15, 7.03.11
This conference will enhance the dialog of experts and young scientists on: 1) the current and emerging challenges posed by pests and pathogens to forest tree species; 2) the current status and extent of our knowledge of genetic foundations of resistance to these threats; 3) the emerging ideas and technologies from around the globe that are relevant to resistance genetics and breeding programs; 4) the successes to date in applied resistance breeding programs; and 5) creating a vision for the next decade for work in this area. The timing of this meeting is critical as examples of the implementation of both classical (e.g. white pine blister rust resistance and fusiform rust resistance in pines) and novel (e.g. transgenic blight-resistant chestnut) resistance development in forest species are coming to the forefront and the directions that individual breeding programs may choose for developing resistant trees in the future will likely rely heavily on examples such as these.
