Event start date


The Let’s talk about Planted Forests webinar on tree breeding will take place on 13 January 2023 at 1pm CET.


During this webinar B4EST project partners will comment on the main outcomes of the project that finished in 2022. This webinar will be an opportunity to discuss how tree breeding's new tools can help to better adapt forest plantations to global change, what are the deployment recommendations and tools developed during the project, and the legal issues and policy needs identified.

To discuss this subject, the IEFC invited 3 experts. Here’s a quick overview of our speakers and topics:

  • Mats Berlin, SKOGFORSK: ”Better selection of forest reproductive material (FRM) – now and in the future”
  • Egbert Beuker, LUKE: “Legal barriers and policy needs for marketing improved forest reproductive material (FRM) in Europe”
  • Catherine Bastien, INRAE
