University of Freiburg
Founded in 1457, the University of Freiburg is one of the oldest German universities, and is now one of the nation's leading research and teaching institutions.Forestry is taught in the Faculty of Forest and Environmental Sciences. The foremost research fields of the Faculty concern the interactions between environment and society, especially taking into account aspects of global change. Topics including "sustainable use of resources" and "forests and landscapes" are a central part of research interests.
Natural sciences, social sciences, and technical competences serve as a foundation for a wide-ranged, interdisciplinary approach to research and education. As a result, scientific findings provide us with a deeper understanding and transfer into society and political consulting.
