International activities

Forests cross political borders, and the forest industry operates globally. Forest researchers have always sought international contacts on a genuine basis, because local forestry no longer exists.

Our researchers participate in various international research consortia and projects. We conduct top-notch research with the best academia in the world and we also take active role in development co-operation in Asia and Africa.  We take part in the public debate and collaborate with the industry and NGO's.

We educate international experts in forest and wood sciences and about 50 per cent of our MSc graduates, and 75 per cent of our DSc graduates, have come to study with us from around the world. Four of our five MSc programmes are lectured in English and doctoral dissertations are done in international research groups.

Our researchers publish annually about 70 internationally peer reviewed scientific articles in leading journals of forest and wood sciences.
