The EEA Topic Centre on Biodiversity (ETC/BD) is an international consortium working with the European Environment Agency under a framework partnership agreement.
EFI has been a partner in the core team of the ETC/BD. It worked closely together with other core partners of the ETC/BD with emphasis on forest biodiversity related issues. A new work plan is made at the beginning of every year depending on the needs of the EEA or the EC. The cooperation was run from 2005-2008.
