This report presents results from three studies done within the Work Package 6 (Technology foresight and barriers of innovation) of the EU FP7 project INFRES. The aims of the studies were to 1) identify and rank the criteria that forest machine manufacturing companies are using to measure the success/failure of an innovation, 2) identify barriers that forest machine manufacturing companies are facing and find out how these barriers are tackled and 3) identify and discuss innovations that have been successful in the forest energy sector and innovations that were not successful and the reasons for that.
