SLU Forest Damage Centre annual conference

events | meetings |

Welcome to the SLU Forest Damage Centre's annual conference. During this year's conference, you can take part in research results on forest damage, participate in discussions about implementation for practical forestry and, of course, network.

We hope that you, as a participant during the conference, will get an overview of research on forest damage, that you will gain insight into how research projects go from idea to results. But also that you will participate in discussions regarding the implementation of knowledge for practical forestry and that you will have the possibility to network. The conference invites the forestry sector, you who are professional in forestry, researcher or forest owner.

We will host the conference in Swedish.
