Joint EFIPLANT & IEFC Annual Meeting 2019

Published on


Join us for our next Annual Meeting on 3-5 June 2019 in Bordeaux, France! The scientific seminar theme will be “Networking to improve risk preparedness and mitigation in planted forests”.

This year’s annual meeting is dedicated to strategic discussions, so make your voice heard in the "grand debate". As the unit has moved from a regional office to a facility, it is time to update the unit strategic document to incorporate the new scope and context. A draft document will be shared with the attendees before June so comments and suggestions can be discussed during the conference. In addition, the EFIPLANT supporting network for Europe – IEFC - is also organising a survey about its future development and will share the results.

The first day will be dedicated to a technical annual meeting, which will be jointly organised with IEFC as in previous years. The meeting will also provide a dedicated open session of presentations given by any network member or organisation wanting to share an initiative, an idea, or results in keeping with the planted forest facility objectives. Any title of presentation for the open session is welcome and can be submitted during registration.

The second day will be dedicated to the Seminar organised by the PLURIFOR consortium at the venue of the Nouvelle Aquitaine regional council: “Networking to improve risk preparedness and mitigation in planted forests”.

The third and last day will consist of an excursion for all participants.


These days are co-organised with IEFC and PLURIFOR project
