Look behind the scenes – meet our experts that make EFI work

The last edition of EFIMED’s newsletter is actively asking for our Mediterranean community's participation! During these last months of confinement due to COVID-19 many projects have launched surveys and questionnaires in order to analyse the effects of this situation on the forest sector.

Forest Europe (formerly known as the Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe - MCPFE and established on 18 December 1990) is Europe´s high level political process that develops common strategies for its 47 signatories (46 European countries and the European Union) on sustainable management of forests (including the protection of forests) in the Pan-European region.

EFI has selected eight young researchers as Short-term Mobility (STM) grantees in the 2020 call.
