For the January 2022 FOREXT Friday, we welcomed Venla Wallius (junior researcher) and Arnaldo Marques (trainee) from EFI to present an overview of digital and innovative services available for forest owners. They are mapping services, initiatives and projects worldwide, creating a database with the main findings inside Forestry 4.0 concepts. The work is a part of the NOMADI project (Green growth for the bioeconomy of North Karelia through digital transformation of forest services), more information: https://efi.int/projects/nomadi-nopeaa-kasvua-maakunnan-biotalouteen-digitaalisuudesta.
This was the last FOREXT Fridays for now, thank you to all our presenters and participants!
