transForm is an Agenda created under Component 5 (C5) of the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP), which focuses on Business Capitalisation and Innovation, in the context of the incentive systems for Mobilizing Agendas and Green Agendas for Business Innovation.
Led by Altri Florestal and under the technical and scientific coordination of ForestWISE, TransForm integrates a consortium of 56 partners in an unprecedented effort of sectoral cooperation.
The transForm Agenda aims to bring a structural transformation of the Portuguese forestry sector, acting in a concerted approach across the entire value chain. It is materialized in twenty-eight collaborative projects, which are organized into five work packages (WP) dedicated to the management of resilient forests (WP1), sustainable operations and logistics (WP2), circular and resilient industry (WP3), markets and consumers for forest products (WP4), capacity building (WP5). Cross-cutting the entire Agenda, there is also a WP6 dedicated to coordination, dissemination and exploitation of results.
Eleven new products, processes and services (PPS) will result from the Agenda, supported by digital technologies, with a high degree of innovation, which will contribute to a more sustainable forest management, to the efficiency improvement of industrial processes, and to the competitiveness of the forest sector ensuring a greater connection to markets and consumers.
The Term of Acceptance was signed on July 23, 2023 and all projects will run until December 31, 2025.
The implementation of this Agenda will have a national scope and the total investment planned is around 130 million euros, allocated to productive investment, research, development and innovation, qualification and internationalisation, dissemination and training of human resources.
The Transform Agenda will deliver 11 Products, Processes and Services (PPS):
