Open meeting SLU Forest Damage Centrum

Last changed: 15 November 2022

Welcome to the Open Meeting of the SLU Forest Damage Centre on 19-20 January at the Aronsborg conference centre in Bålsta. The meeting is open to anyone interested in the field of forest damage.

The aim of the conference is to:

  • identify problems of forest damage and discuss possible ways forward,
  • communicate what the Forest Damage Centre has done so far, and
  • develop contacts between researchers and the wider community.

Desired outcome:

  • A sense of ownership of the problem formulation and ways forward
  • Increased knowledge on how to take forest damage issues forward
  • Increased networks

The core of the conference programme is thematic discussions on different types of forest damage, where researchers contribute with short presentations of their research results and other participants contribute with their experiences and knowledge. In order to design the programme, we ask you to tell us which topics you are most interested in addressing during the conference.
