UEF secures 0.5 million euros of Horizon Europe funding for SingleTree project

The SingleTree project is a research and innovation initiative funded by the Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking (CBE JU). 

European forests are facing unprecedented threats caused by the climate change. The promotion of sustainable forest management practices is vital to support Europe’s bioeconomy, counteract biodiversity loss, and boost the resilience of European forests.

SingleTree aims to enhance climate change adaptation, forest resilience, multifunctional and sustainable management and use of  woody biomass in precision forestry. 

The project will develop disruptive forest monitoring strategies based on artificial intelligence and remote sensing, adaptive single-tree level management solutions, intelligent machines for implementing single-tree operations, and improved traceability and ability to predict wood quality as a foundation for optimised biomass supply. This project aims to enhance the sustainability and resilience of European forests while optimizing the use of woody biomass.

Project Period: It runs from 1 September 2024 to 31 August 2028.

The project involves collaboration among several institutions, including Nibio (Norway), Fundación Centro de Servicios y promoción Forestal y de su Industria de Castilla y León (Spain), Creative Optimization Sweden AB, (Sweden), Universidad de Valladolid (Espanja), Maanmittauslaitos (Finland), Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet (Sweden), Koko Forest Oy (Finland), Kelluu Oy (Finland), SCA Skog (Sweden), University of Eastern Finland (Finland), and Norges teknisk-naturvitenskapelige universitet NTNU (Norway).
