    Science and partnership : Value chains complexity in the forest sector

    • Sophie D'Amours, prés., Université Laval

    Over the past 25 years, the way activities are planned in the forestry sector has greatly evolved. This presentation will illustrate this evolution, with a focus on understanding the value chains of the forestry sector, the nature of planning decisions, and the interconnections between chains. Planning, decision making, and implementation will be explored through an integrated and collaborative planning framework. A better understanding of the forest and business reality associated with the preservation and valorization of forest resources has contributed over the years to an intensification of research on decision support systems (e.g., investment, revenue and demand management, collaborative logistics and forest management). This research offers new analytical tools to support a more sustainable development of the sector, which will be illustrated by various applications. The links between science and innovation will be addressed, as well as the importance of knowledge and technology transfer in a context of digital, environment and socio-economic transitions. Serious games will be presented as interactive tools to enhance knowledge transfer, learning and skills development.
