This joint network call is a part of the SNS-EFINORD cooperation since 2012. The aim of the collaboration is to establish better contact between the forest research communities in the Nordic, Baltic Sea and the North Atlantic regions. The link between the North European Region and EFI should be tightened and add a European dimensions into the well-established Nordic forest research co-operation.
To increase the Nordic – Baltic – North Atlantic synergies, an EFINORD – SNS network should assemble partners from three different Nordic countries and three other EFINORD countries.
