The INCREDIBLE Open Innovation Challenge (OIC) will select the five most innovative ideas with the potential to increase the environmental, economic or social value of Mediterranean non-wood forest products (NWFPs). OIC winners will be invited to attend the INCREDIBLE business acceleration programme organised by leading forestry and business experts.
The initiative responds to challenges for non-wood forest products value chains analysed by the INCREDIBLE team during the first year of the project and aims to identify innovative solutions.
Registration will be open from April to August 2019!

Non-wood forest products (NWFP) have the potential to become a real social and economic resource for the Mediterranean and its people but they are currently undervalued and under-exploited.
The INCREDIBLE project, funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, is a Thematic Network to share knowledge, connect people and foster social, technological or managerial innovation in Mediterranean NWFPs through transversal and multidisciplinary approaches. iNets for cork, resins, wild mushrooms & truffles, medicinal & aromatic plants, and wild nuts & berries bring experts together for regional and international exchange, while a Community of Practice explores cross-cutting themes across the different sectors.
