OLEF platform

By means of the Observatory for Forest Economics (OLEF), BETA provides an important platform for gathering economic and environmental data related to forests, wood, and related goods and services.

In a context of open science, and the sharing and availability of data, OLEF is working to ensure that the Observatory’s data is consistent with the notion of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Inter-operational and Re-usable).

Its objectives?

  • To centralize information to facilitate research, teaching, and expertise [Findable & Accessible]
  • To make data durable [Interoperable & Reusable]
