In 2019, EFI offered five grants for Short Scientific Visits (SSV) for Early Stage Researchers from EFI Associate and Affiliate Member organisations. The visits provide a unique opportunity for interested candidates to get involved in international level forest research and research co-operation.
Meet this year's grantees here. Their visits will take place between 1 July, 2019 and 30 April, 2020.
The Board of EFI has awarded Mr Persson an EFI Fellowship, for his outstanding leadership of ThinkForest, and his contribution to EFI becoming recognised as a leading science-policy platform.
Members from 10 different European countries have gathered to establish best practices for forest management post disasters, in a meeting organized by the European Network Integrate, the Ministry of Environment of Poland and State Forests, and facilitated by the European Forest Institute.
Participants agreed on the importance of European collaboration to exchange knowledge and experiences to adjust and integrate forest management practices responding to both conservation and forest production demands.
