Forest Knowledge Academy


This project aims to create the Forest Knowledge Academy (FKA) collaborative network, joining efforts from private companies, sectoral associations, and public and private institutions linked to professional training, and research and innovation. FKA will address the needs of training, demonstration, and knowledge transfer actions, geared to meet industries, forest managers, forestry operators, and service providers’ needs. As part of this network, Specialized Training actions in Forest Mechanization and Telemetry (FEM) will be organized to train professionals, coupling advances in technical and scientific knowledge and its expression in the business sector.
