Sustainable forest management – research capacities and priorities

The workshop gathered over 40 participants – the representatives of forest sector from Russia, EU and five Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, and Moldova). The participants represented applied research, academic and educational organizations, as well as business organizations and public bodies in the forest sector.

The workshop outcomes will be used as a basis for further work on identifying joint research priorities, as background work for a possible later joint call for proposals targeted at EU and Russia/Eastern partnership on research on sustainable forest management.

The event was organized under the umbrella of the ongoing ERA-Net project SUMFOREST focused on reinforcing scientific cooperation on forests and reducing fragmentation of research activities in Europe and EU neighborhood countries.
