Innovation in Forestry Territorial and Value Chain Relationships Edited by Gerhard Weiss, Davide Pettenella, Pekka Ollonqvist and Bill Slee Innovation is increasingly recognized as a key factor in environmental protection and sustainable development in forestry and forest-based industries. This volume provides a comprehensive theoretical foundation for the analysis of innovation processes and policies in a traditional, rural sector as well as presenting empirical analyses of innovation processes from major innovation areas. Innovative solutions are analysed in wood-related value chains, including timber-frame construction, furniture, bio-energy and forest transportation. Territorial services of the forest sector are examined, including various types of forest ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration, non-wood products and recreation. Innovation in Forestry is essential reading for researchers and policy makers in forestry and environmental sciences.

Innovation is increasingly recognized as a key factor in environmental protection and balanced sustainable development within the forestry sector. This volume provides a comprehensive theoretical foundation for the analysis of innovation processes and policies in a traditional, rural sector as well as presenting empirical analyses of innovation processes from major innovation areas. Territorial services of the forest sector are examined, including various types of forest ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration or recreation and wood value chains, including timber frame construction and.

"The book deals with the questions of how the concept of innovation is integrated into policies that are relevant for forestry and forest-based industries, and how these policies are coordinated. These questions are also at the core of the COST Action E51 on "Integrating Innovation and Development Policies for the Forest Sector", which was carried out from 2006 to 2010 with the participation of approximately 40 research institutions from 20 countries. This COST Action studies innovation policies and processes in the forest sector at two levels: the policy level; and the level of innovation processes on the ground. This book presents the main outcomes from the policy level by analysing the seven policy fields that have the strongest influence on the innovation activities in the sector: forestry policy, forest-based industries policy, innovation policy, rural development policy, regional development policy, sustainable development policy, and renewable energy policy. This broad selection of policy fields was made in order to cover all the principal innovation fields in forestry and forest-based industries. The COST Action E51 examined two broad fields of innovation: (a) territorial goods and services associated with forests, and (b) wood value chains."--Editor.
