Knowledge Transfer Scheme


Irish Wood Producers is organising three groups in counties Waterford, Wexford and Kilkenny. The aim of the groups will be to help forest owners become better forest managers.  

Each KTG can have a maximum of 20 participants and each participant will need to attend 7 meetings or outdoor events in order to complete the programme and receive a maximum payment of €490. 

There will be 7 meetings / events in total and the cost of attending will be reimbursed to the forest owner (€70 per meeting/event). Where the number of forest owners exceeds the places available, selection will be on the basis of first come first served.

KTGS discussions are facilitated by a professional forester and will incorporate both classroom style learning as  well as practical elements. KTGs encourage forest owners engage with forestry groups and forestry professionals. KTGs provide the mechanism for gaining this expertise and empower them to manage their own forests over its rotation.
