Trees4Future partners in Berlin

Trees4Future partners from across Europe met in Berlin from 19-23 November, for the first Trees4Future Annual Meeting.

T4F working groupsDedicated working sessions for each Trees4Future work package and intensive plenary sessions helped participants fine-tune and navigate through the many networking and research activities planned for 2013. Partners also took part in a field trip to the Thünen-Institute of Forest Genetics at Waldsieversdorf, where they saw the ongoing IUFRO Scots pine provenance trial, and visited the genetics labs and forest seed testing station.

Laboratory flasksDr Luc Pâques, Coordinator of Trees4Future said: “After little more than a year since Trees4Future was launched, the project is well on its way and on the right track. The multi-disciplinary approach, and the combined expertise of the Trees4Future partners is a real source of innovation, and for finding original solutions to forestry-related activities.”

The project meeting was organised by the Johann Heinrich von Thünen-Institut and INRA Transfert, and hosted by the Julius Kühn-Institut.
