The first day of the Annual Conference was built around the new EFI strategy, and focused on how to implement the strategy to benefit the whole network. The Scientific seminar Emerging forest-based solutions and their implications for forest management was held on 5 October. This open seminar looked into the biobased future with a special focus on innovative bio-based technologies and opportunities and challenges for forest management in the 21st century.
