Technology Transfer and Data Sharing

Technology Transfer and Data Sharing

The Australian forest and wood products sector has increasing availability of data along the value chain from forests to mills to markets but this information is often poorly integrated into decision support tools. The interconnectivity of data collection devices (i.e. ‘Internet of Things’) and improved data analytical tools (e.g., ‘Big Data’) have the potential to revolutionise the sector.

FWPA's technology transfer and data sharing activities involve identifying and developing improvements to forest management, harvesting, transport, manufacturing processes, product development and information systems to provide value to all participants in the value chain.

This activity complements other Programs, in particular, Information and Training and the availability of Industry Statistics and Resources - including Research Reports and recorded Webinars.

Our acknowledgment

In the spirit of reconciliation, Forest & Wood Products Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia, and we acknowledge their connection to the land and their custodianship of Country and forests. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
