The director of the NFZ.forestnet partner institution FVA, Prof. Konstantin von Teuffel, served as Chair of the Congress Organizing Committee (COC). All other NFZ.forestnet partner institutions and board members were engaged either in the COC, in the Scientific Organizing Committee, and as coordinators and providers of scientific sessions, special events, excursions, and back-to back summer schools, trainings, and scientific presentations. We are proud to have hosted more than 2300 forest scientists, politicians, and forest practitioners from all over the world in our tri-nation region, in the City and University of Freiburg.
We hope that the provision of a kaleidoscope of world leading key note speakers, highly topical presentations and discussions, inspiring events, and a stimulating working atmosphere will be remembered as a successful starting point for sustainably “Interconnecting Forests, Science and People“.
