Trees4Future: research without borders
"It was a fine experience to be part of a small research community in which the people care for each other”.
The Trees4Future Transnational Access programme offers researchers free access to 28 state-of-the-art forest research structures and facilities across Europe. The facilities on offer focus on genetics, genomics and tree breeding, (eco-)physiology and biotechnology, wood science and technology and modelling/data analysis. They include genetic databanks, biobanks, laboratories, models and decision-support systems.
