rePLANT is a technological project that brings together companies, universities and research centers to enhance and defend the forest. We spoke to Alexandra Marques, the project’s director and ForestWISE representative, and José Luís Carvalho, rePLANT co-leader and Navigator representative, about the results presented recently.
“The results of this project are promising and will make a very positive contribution to the Portuguese forest, whether in terms of productivity, resilience or knowledge. Although finished, the success of rePLANT does not end with the results already achieved,” said José Luís Carvalho, rePLANT co-leader and Navigator representative, in an interview with Green Savers.
For Alexandra Marques, from the project’s Board and representing ForestWISE, the balance “is very positive, with eight technologies tested, three new pieces of equipment developed, 10 test pilots, two decision support systems, 9 technical manuals for improving forest management and, among others, 8 demonstration actions”.
