The ForestPotential project was kicked off at the RunWay confernce hotel at Gardermoen on the 22nd and 23rd of March 2018. Most of the partners were present or participating online.

In the meeting, each of the partners introduced their field of expertise and recent research activities relevant to the project. Then each work package was presented and discussed in detail. The discussions were very useful and the outlook for a fruitful cooperation to reach the project goals is promising.
