Apply for Scientific Visits!

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

In the year 2018 EFI offers max 10 grants for Short Scientific Visits (SSV) for Early Stage Researchers from EFI Associate and Affiliate Member organisations. These visits provide a unique opportunity for interested candidates to get involved in international level forest research and research co-operation.

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: gain experience of working in a different organisation in another European country, foster collaboration, and learn a new technique, methods or tools not available in their own institution. The visit should take place between June 17, 2018 and May 31, 2019

The call for applications for 2018 is now opened. The deadline for submission of applications is 28 March 2018 before 16:00 CET.

More information about the grants can be found here or by contacting Ms. Katriina Pajari (katriina.pajari @
