Held in the UTAD Central Library Auditorium, this seminar focuses on the current challenges facing the forestry industry, such as environmental concerns, labour restrictions, logistics, natural disasters and public interactions, describing methods and approaches to dealing with these challenges, such as value chain management, analysis, optimisation, collaboration, digital twins, automation, big data, educational tools and decision support systems.

Led by Mikael Rönnqvist, this seminar will also aim to present various industrial applications and their impacts, in which analysis methods and data sources are combined to meet the challenges.
