Nordic forests span large geographical ranges, with correspondingly large ranges in environmental conditions.
Thus, the composition of the forests and forestry practices also vary, but there are long traditions of mutual respect, collaborative research and commitment to sharing knowledge among Nordic foresters and forest researchers.
Key components of SNS’ mission are to encourage, coordinate and enhance Nordic research efforts, raise the international profile of Nordic forest research, and actively participate in European forest policy and research.
To be funded by SNS your activity needs to address Nordic forests or forestry related issues. Furthermore, the activity need to include participants from at least three Nordic countries and your subject should generate results that are important in a Nordic context.
Your project will facilitate the exchange of knowledge, contacts between researchers in the different Nordic countries or sharing of research equipment and research results.
We don’t fund a whole project, you need some kind of self funding too. Often we participate in a national ongoing project.
