The EFIMED network includes forest researchers, practitioners, policy makers and entrepreneurs from across the Mediterranean who wish to connect, collaborate, and exchange knowledge. Coordination of the network is a core element of EFIMED’s mission to strengthen the bridge between science, policy, and practice in Mediterranean forestry. 

Together, members of the EFIMED network can contribute to improved resilience in the Mediterranean basin. The network comprises a diverse range of research and training institutions, forest management organisations, SMEs and public and private administration from across Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, and counts on support and interest from forest-related organisations around the world.
