News 12/06/2023

The project will develop a new system that will enable customers buying wood products to track them all the way back to the individual trees in the forest from which they were made and its scheme will be able to trace along the full length of the forest value chain, trees, logs, and wooden boards – using five different but integrated tracking systems. The National Research Council of Italy (CNR) takes part in the project with the Institute of BioEconomy (Cnr-Ibe) as the Cnr leading proponent, and the Institute of informatics and telematics (Cnr-Iit)
