We strive to deliver high quality research and networking services. This is reflected through our management processes, which are based on professionalism, transparency, participation and fairness.


We explore and test new and innovative approaches in our activities. We develop new ways of promoting and organising research, sharing knowledge and improving networking and partnerships at the pan-European level.


We take care that our clients, member countries and organisations are satisfied with our products and services. EFI staff aim to contribute to an inspiring and stimulating networking environment.


We openly invite our Members, member organisations and the multi-disciplinary forest research community at large, to utilise and take part in the EFI network. We believe that such participation helps achieve better co-operation and coordination of research, improves the knowledge-base for policy-making and decision-taking, and strengthens the science-policy interface.
