Grants and training
EFI works to build scientific capacity and share knowledge across Europe and beyond. It is committed to creating and supporting a new generation of forest scientists and to building bridges and cooperation between different countries and disciplines.
Our initiatives include:
We offer various possibilities for young researchers to get involved with our work. Currently, traineeships and bachelor or master’s theses opportunities are available. Find out more!
Each year we offer 10 grants for Short Scientific Visits (SSV) for Early Stage Researchers from EFI Associate and Affiliate Member organisations. These visits provide a unique opportunity for interested candidates to get involved in international level forest research and research co-operation. The call for applications for 2018 is closed, but you can find out more about the visits which have taken place in 2017-2018.
EFI's Young Leadership Programme is aimed at young professionals working in the research and development, governance, administration or business side of the forest sector, or a related area. The 5-day programme offers a unique opportunity for young professionals with leadership potential to interact with a network of global peers and experts, and share practical experience through group exercises.
This joint initiative offers grants for short scientific visits to support young scientists from Africa, Asia and Latin America to visit a European forest research organisation.
EFI facilitates the EVOLTREE network, which offers a variety of funding initiatives to its members.
