International Research Networks

Current Activities in International Research Networks

  • NNEXT: COST Action FP1403
    A European network dealing with non-native tree species in European Forests. Within the network (i) the most important tree species, (ii) their history and current distribution, (iii) their potential in respect to growth, value production and silvicultural practices as well as (iv) assessment of risks. (Contribution of IWW: Vice Chair)
  • SURGE

    Strengthening the Adaptive Potential of the Forests of Western Ukraine, Northwest Russia and Southwest Germany to Changing Environmental Conditions and Societal Needs - Strategies and Measures for Increasing and Sustaining the Provision of Forest Ecosystem Goods and Services   Press release University

  • NWFP: COST Action FP1203
    European non-wood forest products network: NWFPs offer wide range of many different products. NWFPs can be derived from trees, understory plants, fungi or animals. They are collected from natural forests, or produced in plantations and agroforestry systems. Examples of NWFPs include mushrooms, truffles, bark (e. g. cork), nuts, acorns and other tree fruits, resin, understory berries, medicinal and aromatic plants, fodder and litter for livestock, honey and game.

    IUFRO is "the" global network for forest science cooperation. It unites more than 15,000 scientists in almost 700 member organiziations in over 110 countries.
  • ConForest
    ConForest is a Project Centre of the European Forest Institute dealing with the CONversion of coniferous FORESTs on sites naturally dominated by broadleaves for sustainable fulfilment of societys needs.
  • COST E42 Growing Valuable Broadleaved Tree Species (ValBro)
    www.valbro.de (site under construction)
    COST E42 is a Network of scientists from different countries all over Europe working on ecological, economic, and social aspects of growing valuable broadleaved tree species, such as wild cherry (prinus avium), maple (acer spec.), birch species (betula spec.), and several others.
