B2B Event – Innovations for grazed woodlands
The B2B Event – Innovations for grazed woodlands is planned in the framework of the Cross Border Living Laboratories for Agroforestry (LIVINGAGRO) project, funded by the European Union through the ENI CBC Med Programme and organized by the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute (LARI) in collaboration with the Forest Agency for Land and Environment of Sardinia (FoReSTAS). The main aim of the event is to support education, research and development, innovation, technology transfer, and publishing and marketing research results.
Farmers, entrepreneurs, local administrators, researchers, private companies, policy makers and multiple stakeholders interested in agroforestry issues, especially in the field of grazed woodlands, will have the opportunity to participate, whether onsite or online, in a series of discussions, round tables and one-on-one meetings highlighting the latest scientific research and implementing state-of-the-art innovations related to grazed woodlands that contributes to the development of the sector.
With its open innovation approach, LIVINGAGRO project will help different stakeholders during this one-day B2B event in identifying the types of problems facing this sector, as well as underlining and co-designing the most workable technological solutions that maximize the ecosystem functionality of the grazed forest and enhance the many aspects and resources that agroforestry in grazed woodland can provide.
During the morning session, a professional panel of acclaimed guest speakers, including representatives from LARI, LIVINGAGRO consortium and other research institutions, will be sharing insights on different topics and innovations related to agroforestry in order to help stakeholders to increase profitability, sustainability, and biodiversity in the face of limited resources and environmental constraints. These discussion sessions will tackle issues regarding adaptive grazing management, reconciling grazing with trees, mixtures for quality pasture, shade tolerant species, remote sensing techniques to monitor oak forests, thinning and pruning trees in silvopastoral systems, land imprinter for rangelands rehabilitation coupled with rangeland species seeder and, hydroponic fodder system.
In the afternoon, all attendees are invited to participate in an open discussion during two round table sessions on grazed woodlands and forest management as well as to schedule a one-to-one meeting with the aim of getting more information about the innovations of greatest interest with one of the guest speakers of the event.
