In short, SmartForest aims to improve the efficiency of the Norwegian forest sector by enabling a digital revolution transforming forest information, silviculture, forest operations, wood supply and the overall digital information flow in the sector.
The digital transformation will be enabled by a series of innovations that will form the foundation for the development of a strong Forest-tech sector in Norway.

Given the support from the Norwegian Research Council and the centre partners, SmartForest is beyond doubt the largest R&D initiative ever launched for the Norwegian forest sector.
