The results are published in the “Report on the mapping and characterisation of existing funding programmes and research capacities”.

To identify complementarities, overlaps, gaps, strengths and weaknesses in forest research a country matrix analysis was performed.

The data from questionnaires were organized in order to select eleven indicators:
(i) staff involved in forestry scientific organizations;
(ii) ISI papers published by forestry scientific organizations;
(iii) top five most utilized forestry journals;
(iv) top nine most prestigious journals (with highest IF);
(v) overall forestry research budget;
(vi) budget financed by funding bodies for forestry projects;
(vii) budget of forestry projects;
(viii) number of forestry projects;
(ix) inventory of infrastructures dedicated to forestry research;
(x) budget of forestry project per topic area;
(xi) most promising forestry research lines.

Access to the report and the Database including the data from questionnaires, addressed to funding bodies and scientific organisations, are available on the FORESTERRA Website.
