Short Scientific Visits

Each year, EFI offers grants for scientific visits for young researchers from forest research and education organisations to visit another institution.

In 2017 EFI offers up to 10 grants for Short Scientific Visits (SSV) for Early Stage Researchers from EFI Associate Member organisations. These visits provide a unique opportunity for interested candidates to get involved in international level forest research and research cooperation.

The aims of a Short Scientific Visit are to contribute to the scientific objectives of EFI and to strengthen the EFI network by allowing young scientists to: visit an institution in another European country, foster collaboration and learn a new technique, use methods and tools not available in their own institution. The visits will take place between June 2017 and May 2018.

The deadline for Applications is 31 March 2017.
