Applications are open for the 10th summer school of NFZ.forestnet, the European network for forest research and higher education. During the 2015 edition in the Swiss Alps, a short video clip captured the spirit of these annual events aimed at PhD students - they are both smart and fun.

The next NFZ summer school will take place late August 2016 near Freiburg i. Br. (Germany) and will be dedicated to bioeconomy. It is intended for PhD students from all countries with various backgrounds ranging from socio-economics and policy to ecology, sylviculture, agro-forestry, and wood sciences, to name only a few. As every year, this summer school will include lectures, poster sessions, excursions and group work with presentations. 

NFZ.forestnet is a European research and higher education network which gathers 7 French, German and Swiss institutions working on forestry, forest ecosystem and forest-related products. The summer school programme was the first project to be developed within NFZ.forestnet. NFZ summer schools are alternately organized each year by one of the three partner countries.
