The RN21 Integrated Project Supervisory Board met to present the results of each measure and analyse agenda items, Voz do Campo

The RN21 Integrated Project’s Advisory and Control Board (COF), the highest body in the consortium’s structure, met on 28 February at Espaço Inovação Mealhada to discuss various issues relating to the management of the Integrated Project. CoLAB ForestWISE®, the leader of this aggregating consortium, hosted the meeting at which the first ordinary session of the Advisory Board also took place.

The session was opened by Mealhada Municipal Executive Councillor Ricardo Santos, Project Director Rogério Rodrigues and CoLAB ForestWISE® CTO Carlos Fonseca, who emphasised the “importance of showing what good is being done in this consortium, which is essential to share with the partners who accompany us”.

This was followed by the presentation of more than 20 measures, which form part of the three pillars on which the RN21 Integrated Project is based, namely: promoting the production of national natural resin (pillar I); strengthening the sustainability of the processing industry (pillar II); and the positive differentiation of Natural Resin and derived products (pillar III).

The “Training and Professionalisation of Resin Workers” was one of the measures presented for Pillar I, the main aim of which is to develop an Academy capable of training resin extraction professionals.

For Pillar II, one of the measures presented was the “Transition to renewables and efficient use of water and energy”, which aims to draw up a study and roadmap on best practices in the sustainable use of water and energy.
