May 2007; 17:00 h Brussels local time Single stage submission process Funding Schemes: Small or medium-scale collaborative projects (< 3 million EC funding) Large-scale collaborative projects ( 3 - 6 million EC funding) Coordination and Support Actions (< 1 million EC funding) FP7 Theme 2 - Food, Agriculture, Fisheries and Biotechnology
5 Activity 1: Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest and aquatic environments Area 1.2: Increased sustainability of all production systems (agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture); Plant health and crop protection Keywords: improved/novel breeding strategies (e.g. resistance breeding, marker assistant breeding, genetically designing trees with enhanced physiological characteristics), reduce the vulnerability of trees towards the impact of biotic hazards, pests, diseases and improve adaptation to changing environmental conditions due to climate change. Funding scheme: Large collaborative project Expected impact: adapt production strategies to more rapidly changing market and environmental conditions. KBBE-2007-1-2-07: Novel forest tree breeding Forestry FP7 Theme 2 - Food, Agriculture, Fisheries and Biotechnology
6 KBBE-2007-1-2-08: Developing new methods for valuing and marketing of currently non-marketable forest goods and services Activity 1: Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest and aquatic environments Area 1.2: Increased sustainability of all production systems (agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture); Plant health and crop protection Keywords: new valuation methods to assess the socio-economic impact of a wide range of forest externalities, develop new or improved marketing concepts and integrated production methods for non-wood forest products. [ ] goods, benefits and services such as clean water and air, recreation, hazard protection and prevention, landscape, etc.. Funding scheme: Small collaborative project Expected impact: viable income for forest owners, future stability of European forests, sustainable rural development Forestry FP7 Theme 2 - Food, Agriculture, Fisheries and Biotechnology
7 Activity 3: Life Sciences and Biotechnology for sustainable non- food products and processes Area 3.1 Improved biomass and plant renewables Key-words: [ ] high added value products made of wood based fibres with high durability and usability [ ] replacement of unsustainable products [ ] and hazardous components [ ] environmentally friendly biobased products Funding scheme: Large collaborative project Expected impact: diversification of the forest industries and opportunity to apply post-genomic knowledge in the production of derived forest products KBBE-2007-3-1-04: Forest products new forest based products and processes Specialities Bioenergy Wood Forestry Pulp&Paper FP7 Theme 2 - Food, Agriculture, Fisheries and Biotechnology
8 NMP-2007- 4.0-1 : Advanced wood-based composites and their production Activity 4.4: Integration of technologies for industrial applications Key-words: [ ] improving production efficiency is not alone sufficient for maintaining the competitiveness of the European forest-based industry. [ ] develop new high added value products produced by new resource efficient production concepts. [ ] intelligent recombination of specific physical properties [ ] for example replacing lignin with silicon or ceramics in the wood nanostructure can yield radically new product properties. Funding scheme: Large-scale integrating projects Specific features: [ ] a significant SME participation is expected Expected impact: placing sustainability at the forefront of cost control and competitive advantage as well as emphasising its role in industry's social responsibility [ ] develop several new product families based on new production concepts that exploit the potential of wood-based composites across a variety of applications in the health, electronics and food sectors, as well as in the fields of construction, furniture, packaging, speciality papers, vehicles and textiles.

9 ENERGY.2007.3.3.1 : Forest-based biorefinery ACTIVITY ENERGY 3: Renewable Fuel Production AREA ENERGY 3.3: Biorefinery The biorefinery concept aims at maximising the value derived fromer biomass feedstock by using all of its components. Key-words: Development of advanced fractionation and conversion technologies to be integrated in a pulp mill for the combined production of new bioproducts and biofuels Funding scheme: Large collaborative project with predominant R&D component Expected impact: Maximise renewable energy output from pulp mills, optimising economics of total process FP7 Theme 5 - Energy Specialities Bioenergy Pulp&Paper

14 Task of a National Support Group Integration of stakeholders Industries, forest owners, SMEs Scientific community National agencies Prioritisation of research themes from a national perspective (National Research Agenda) and coordination with the European SRA. Facilitate funding activities. Contact and networking on national level with other technology platforms or similar initiatives (e.g. regional clusters). Support project development and consortia buildung Introduce, inform about and promote FTP and its SRA in your country, e.g. contacts with politicians, high level authorities, public financiers etc. Promote FTP database.
15 Sweden Private/public funding (BFP) of joint research during 5 years of total 500 MSEK. (Not forestry and bio-energy)
16 FTPs project database Keep track of European FTP projects. Keep track of national FTP projects as an option. Web-based open tool both for input of projects and queries. Possible to introduce a project in max. 15 minutes. Every project, which follows the FTP criteria, gets an unique identification number. Possible to list and follow projects after country, value chain, research area and key words. The software will have a minor one time cost.
