The strategic objective of TECH4EFFECT is to improve the efficiency of European forest management by enabling a data-driven knowledge-based revolution of the European forest sector while also providing key incremental improvements in technology.
TECH4EFFECT has the following objectives, each being addressed in a specific work package:
To increase access to wood resources with focus on accelerated growth rates, improved silvicultural operations and improved business models for more efficient transactions in forest management (WP2)
To increase the efficiency of forest harvesting and collection with focus on infrastructure improvements, forest machine data exploitation, and improved work practices (WP3)
To reduce and monitor soil impacts from forest operations through machine technologies and machine mounted sensors combined with information technology (WP4)
To develop the TECH4EFFECT web-based benchmarking tool to collect and systematize data from forest management and provide a foundation for knowledge-based management of European forest operations in the future (WP5)
To implement the TECH4EFFECT benchmarking tool in a global European version and in country specific adaptations through industrial leadership (WP6)
To assess the environmental and socio-economic performance of the project results for the whole wood value chain (WP7)
