give an oral presentation of their work to the EFI Network in this session.
EFI network offers a good platform to connect young European forest
scientists. 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
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!
