INCREDIBLE cross-cutting seminars to create sectorial partnerships and find innovative solutions
Cross-cutting seminars kick off in Albareto, Italy, a series of meetings seeking innovative solutions to realise the potential of non-wood forest product in the Mediterranean.
A total of three cross-cutting seminars are planned over the course of our project, with the aim of creating cross-sectorial partnerships and supporting NWFP actors and practitioners to find innovative solutions to develop NWFP markets in the Mediterranean. Subsequent seminars will be held later this year on “Innovative business and entrepreneurship for NWFPs” and “ITC tools for improved NWFP value chains and market intelligence”. Stay tuned!
