The conference objective is to compile and synthesise the scientific evidence related to the current state of integrated forest management approaches. This can be understood as approaches where both policy and forest management provide a multitude of services at the same time, either at the forest stand or at the forest landscape level. The conference brings together both informed keynotes, practitioners, latest research in the area, and in high-level policy discussion.

Registration will open November 15, 2019. 

The general conference fee is 100 Euro, covering meals, beverages and the field trip (27.02). For students, we offer a reduced fee of 50 Euro. Please note that we will ask students to provide the university enrolment document within 3 weeks after registration, otherwise the registration will be canceled.
