Welcome to EFI Network News!

We want to reach you with the latest news related to European forest research even more effectively than before. That is why we have launched this electronic newsletter to our closest network of Associate and Affiliate Member organisations, Member Countries and Project Centres. In this first issue, you can read about the growth of EFI, which would not have been possible without the commitment of our Member Countries and Member Organisations. Also, we deliver the update on the first year of  FP7, with a link to the full report by the European Commission.
