  • Biomass and Biorefinery: set of means (e.g. web and face-to-face meetings, fieldtrip, new researchers support by ''older'' ones, keynote speakers) to strengthen the group members collaboration.

  • Manufacturing Systems and Upstream/Downstream Integration: testbed of a real sawmill (reference case for benchmark) for group members' experimentation.

  • Strategic Forest Planning and Design of Value Chains: half-day face-to-face meeting to continue the discussion on group members' synergies.

  • Collaboration and Transformative Strategy: technological platform for knowledge transfer and tools & services access to the Canadian forest sector actors.

  • Transportation and Logistics: contact point to industrial partners to access to decision makers for real problems, data to conduct case studies and feedback on developed solutions.
