In memory of Francisco Rovira Corominas

Francisco Rovira Corominas was the Director of CTFC from its inception in 1996 until 2008. Considered one of the principal champions of forest owners in Spain, he served as president of both the Consorci Forestal de Catalunya and the Confederation of Organisations of Silviculture of Spain.

EFIMED’s Marc Palahí commented: “Francisco Rovira was a key person in convincing the Spanish Government to invest in EFI, by supporting the establishment of the first EFI Project centre: MEDFOREX hosted at the Forest Sciences Center of Catalonia. We will be always grateful for his vision and me personally for offering the opportunity to start my professional career in the Mediterranean context”.

Francisco Rovira’s funeral took place on Tuesday 17 July in Solsona Cathedral.
