Nordic Network in Forest Policy Science (NFPS)
Coordinator: Vilis Brukas, SLU, firstname.lastname@example.org
Financing: 105 000 SEK
Our major goal in the last EFINORD-SNS round (funding granted in 2015) was to connect NFPS with the German-speaking network. This funding period we will focus on:
(i) connecting with the well-established forest policy research environments in the Central European countries and
(ii) to connect researchers from both regions, getting better insights into the latest developments of the scholarship of forest policy science.
A 3-days conference in Netherlands:
(i) parallel sessions of presentations and specifically assigned discussants
(ii) an excursion to a locality representing a complex case of a policy issue (e.g. a land-use conflict) that could be discussed from perspectives of forest policy science
(iii) a workshop on European collaborative projects, and a masterclass to connect young researchers to senior researchers in forest policy.
