FES Innovations for local benefit
Eleven Innovation Actions applied in distinct regional settings undergo a rigorous process of co-design and cross-fertilisation. They locally align provision and demand for FES and create benefits from environmental, social and economic perspectives.
FES Innovations for all
Innovation Mechanisms, particularly novel policies and business models are established which have benefitted directly from the SINCERE co-design process. These are documented and shared for the benefit of forest managers / owners, entrepreneurs and policy-makers.
Increased capacity for innovation
Forest owners / managers (FES suppliers) and broader society have increased knowledge and capabilities to innovate at the frontier between FES supply and demand.
The business case for FES
Entrepreneurs have increased knowledge about sustainable Innovation Mechanisms that are replicable or can be upscaled. The opportunities offered by FES are clearly demonstrated, making the concept more attractive for relevant spheres of the business world and generating interest from the sector.
Policy support for FES
Policymakers have access to clear recommendations on supportive and hindering factors for the provision of FES, based on actual cases and which have been developed jointly with policymakers themselves.
Global connections for worldwide innovation
European scientists, entrepreneurs and policymakers are connected with global counterparts in the development of IA cases in Peru and the Russian Federation. International activities and networking ensure that Europe’s contribution to the development of IM for FES is well-recognised at a global scale.
FES for society
Public awareness about FES in the communities local to the project increases, demonstrated by (perceived) increased demand for FES and uptake of services provided. FES have an increased perceived value as society looks increasingly towards a sustainable bioeconomy.
