Last September 20th CTAG hosted a meeting between the partners in the BIOTECFOR project – Biobusiness and technology for the efficient valorisation of endogenous forest resources in the North of Portugal and Galicia.
This project promotes synergies between forestry production and institutions devoted to technological research in automation and new materials. It aims to increase the efficiency levels in the use of forest resources through the application of Intelligent Robotic Systems in their gathering and processing, as well as through the search for applications for new materials, contributing to the development bioeconomy and circular economy in the Galicia-North of Portugal cross-border cooperation space.
The project is led by Forestis (Portuguese Forestry Association) inlcluding as partners AFG (Forestry Association of Galicia), INESC TEC-Technology and Science and CTAG (Automotive Technology Centre of Galicia). It was approved within the framework of the first call of the POCTEP 2014-2020 Programme and is co-financed by the ERDF.
