IEFC Strategic Plan 2021-2026


IEFC will address critical scientific and technical topics to improve the sustainable management of planted forests under global change.


The European Institute of Planted Forest (IEFC) is a formal network of collaborating forest owners, practitioners, researchers, and educators from across Europe who aim to coordinate forest owner/practitioner-driven problem solving initiativees, to promote, facilitate, and improve, through research, networking, and communication, the future resilience and sustainability of Planted Forests in Europe in the context of global change.
The search for such solutions will require close collaboration and the search for synergies with other sectors or areas linked to the bioeconomy and ecosystem services that ensure all three pillars of sustainability: economic, social and environmental are addressed.
Areas of focus: Forest genetic resources, improved resilience of planted forests, bioeconomy, trade-offs in ecosystem services and natural capital valuation.
