Networking and international experience are important components in the development of early stage careers of researchers and EFI is in the process of developing new instruments to support a new generation of forest scientists in Europe who can better address emerging scientific challenges and policy questions.

Summer schools and Short Scientific Visits will be part of EFI portfolio and a specific young scientist session will be organised within each EFI Annual Conference to provide an opportunity for the next generation of forest scientists to present their work to EFI Network.

The Call for presentations is now open!
