Latest events
Event start date
Sofia, Bulgaria

After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, the Organizing Committee has decided to postpone the conference Forestry - Bridge to the Future to 5-8 May, 2021.


The Conference is dedicated to the 95th anniversary of higher forestry education in Bulgaria and is organised by the University of Forestry, Sofia and Faculty of Forestry.

The recent studies have shown that due to many circumstances such as climate change, social and economic factors, forestry is becoming very important for the environment. As more scientific information about global processes accumulates, climate change is emerging as one of the greatest environmental challenges of the 21st century. In addition, air pollution, soil degradation, desertification and deforestation are all intertwined with and contribute to climate change, necessitating a comprehensive approach to a solution.

The Conference will provide an excellent opportunity to establish contacts with eminent scientists and lecturers, to enable joint research projects, exchange experience in higher education, and bring together academic researchers and business practitioners from the forestry sector.

The Conference is organised as an EFI Associated event.
