During the annual ForestNavigator consortium meeting (September 2023 in Laxenburg, Austria), members of the Policy Steering Committee (PSC) gave an update on important forestry policy developments at the EU level, and in two of the ForestNavigator case study countries Ireland and Sweden. They also provided relevant feedback for ForestNavigator work discussed during the annual consortium meeting.
On September 26-27, 2023, the ForestNavigator consortium met in Laxenburg, Austria for a General Assembly meeting to discuss the achievements of the first year and upcoming tasks.
This report presents the conceptualization of the ForestNavigator portal and its components, namely the “Data Repository”, “Model Repository” and “Computing module”. These three components (together referred to as the platform) will host the data, models, and source codes from the ForestNavigator project, as well as workflows for data processing and model deployment. This platform will allow ForestNavigator researchers and external researchers to interoperate shared data and models, to reduce modelling cycles, and to increase the outreach of the project.
ForestNavigator project will be presented at IBFRA in Helsinki, 28-31 August 2023.
The Horizon Europe ForestNavigator project will bring together a varied group of stakeholders at IIASA this week. They will discuss how they can help design robust policy pathways to achieve medium and long-term climate goals and support EU and national decision makers on the road to climate neutrality.
