Dr Weiss welcomes researchers across Europe to join the network: "In the future, we aim to further develop our specific fields of expertise and networks with European researchers, particularly our close network in the Eastern and South-Eastern European region. We have several strong fields of expertise, including EU forest governance, bioeconomy policy, SFM indicators, gender issues as well as innovation in the forest sector."


The Forest Policy Research Network is coordinated by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna.
