About

This Euroforester program at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences is a top choice for you who are open minded and wish to get profound understanding in forest management, ecology, planning and policy that goes beyond certain national traditions.

Overview

Forests are no longer regarded as simply factories for wood production. A wide range of multiple forest uses have become of increasing concern for society – from the regional to global scale. In this regard, the environmental and social concerns of many nations overlap. Likewise, the operations of forest companies increasingly cut-across national borders. Today’s forest sector thereby requires specialists possessing a broad knowledge base and international perspective.

To respond to these needs, the Euroforester programme has been developed in cooperation between 14 forest faculties in Europe. With guidance provided by an international research and teaching team, Euroforester courses include numerous study trips in Sweden and abroad.
