There is great potential in the forestry sector on more efficient use of raw material, machines and data. By utilising the opportunities brought by digitalisation within forestry, Mistra Digital Forest aims to contribute to the transition to a circular bioeconomy.
Within Mistra Digital Forest, test sites have been established as an important hub for the programme cooperation. The test sites consist of a large forest area and research parks where high-resolution data is collected and made available and where field trials will be conducted. Chosen forest areas within the test sites have been laser scanned within the research programme, allowing for determination of species and estimation of forest growth. Moreover, Mistra Digital Forest organises programme conferences, connecting various actors interested in digital and sustainable solutions in the forestry sector.
Mistra Digital Forest is hosted by the Swedish Forest Industries Federation (Skogsindustrierna) and financed by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra), together with the involved parties: BillerudKorsnäs, Holmen, SCA, Stora Enso, Sveaskog, Södra, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Swedish Environmental Research Institute (IVL), Skogsforsk, Umeå University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
