The event will contain a variety of parallel sessions as well as static content by IUFRO Units, Task Forces and Member Organizations. Furthermore, the IUFRO WORLD DAY will include three “Science Informs Policy” webinars on overarching forest research topics, one in each time zone, and three “About IUFRO” networking sessions, one in each time zone. To see how the sessions will be structured in the event, view our timetable.
Members of the global IUFRO network will show and share forest-related research work, projects, news and more.
In each of the three time zone groups there will be presentations by IUFRO Research Units and IUFRO Member Organizations.These parallel sessions will take place throughout the whole event (except for the "prime time" in each region that is reserved for the networking sessions and policy forums). The sessions will contain a variety of information including:
Forest-related research topics from around the world
Insights into the work of IUFRO Units and Member Organization
Latest news on projects of the global IUFRO network
These presentations on topics related to forest, trees and forest products research could be live or recorded sessions or webinars, live or recorded talks or interviews, videos, slides or posters showing activities, announcements, publications etc. Live sessions, publications and other interesting information can be explored through our interactive map.
