What is Forest Policy Research Network?

Our Forest Policy Research Network was established in 2018 and its basis were the former activities with EFI’s Regional Office EFICEEC-EFISEE. Our network is coordinated by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna. They have created a pan-European research network of EFI member organizations and other relevant institutions. 

The network produces new research and activities to create a better understanding of the post-2020 European policy framework in terms of forest-related questions. It builds bridges between western and eastern Europe with capacity building activities and contributes to a fluent dialogue with Forest Europe. You can read more about their work here:


But what are EFI Research Networks?

EFI Research Networks include EFI member organizations and other relevant research partners. The networks aim to enhance European and/or regional cooperation and coordination of transnational research within EFI’s themes of Bioeconomy, Resilience and Governance. Coordinated by an EFI member organization, Research Networks maintain a permanent dialogue between EFI member organizations and EFI Programmes and Facilities.


Our current research networks are:
