This group will work on the Action planned research Tasks 1 to 4 focusing on NWFPs from understory plants (e.g. berries, medicinal plants, forage). WG3 will select which NWFPs of this type will be the focus of the work to be carried out, taking into account their importance in the European context. Emphasis will be put on innovative products and processes related with this type of NWFPs.
