The IUFRO World Congress

The World Congress, attracts 3 – 5000 participants from all over the world, including representatives from governments, NGO's and industry.

The Congress offers the host country the greatest of possibilities to present its qualities and messages to the world.


The recent congresses

The most recent IUFRO World Congresses were held in Brisbane, Australia, Seoul, South Korea and Salt Lake City, U.S.A. In 2019 the congress city will be Curitiba, Brazil.

The next host should then be European!

The global network for forest science IUFRO, International Union of Forest Research Organizations, is the global network for forest science.

IUFRO is one of the world's oldest international scientific organizations - established in 1892 on the conviction that scientific research needs to be an international activity.

Today IUFRO unites over 15,000 scientists in more than 120 countries from virtually all parts of the world.


Knowledge for decision makers

As a non-profit and entirely non-aligned organisation, IUFRO can provide unbiased and high quality knowledge, with the aim that decision-making at all levels is evidence-based and reliable.

The unique qualities of IUFRO are also well reflected through the more than 70 IUFRO-sponsored meetings held every year around the globe.

The most important IUFRO meeting is of course its World Congress, organized every fifth year with a scientific core, attracting participants from all world regions.

Sweden is a forest country, with top quality forest research. We can show and we can share.

Stockholm, Sweden for the IUFRO World Congress 2024 is RIGHT ON!


The IUFRO vision: ”To serve the needs for all forest researchers and decision makers”
