The Strategic Agenda for Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I) is the basis of CoLAB’s activity.

On the agenda, the six main research topics on which ForestWISE works are defined, namely:

  • Forest and fire management;
  • Risk management;
  • Circular economy and value chains;
  • Policy and system design;
  • Cross-cutting technologies;
  • Key enabling technologies;
  • People, fire and forest.


These six themes are divided into 19 sub-themes, which together integrate 62 research topics.

This agenda represents a management tool designed in 2019 during a participatory process involving various actors from the sectors, looking to correspond to associates’ needs, to national priorities and to support the definition of sectoral public policies in which ForestWISE will have an active voice.
