Welcome to the FOREST Website!

We are a group of scientists conducting research on forests in Europe and in the world with the aim of developing a Forest Information System for Europe (FISE).  The system will include not only European information on forests, but also all the relevant information on forests at the global scale that influences forests and forestry activities in Europe. The website of the system is under development although it is already  accessible at  

Following the adoption of a European Union Forest Strategy (COM 2013 (659 final)) by the European Commission, our activities in FISE are organised in four modules dealing with:

  • Forest Disturbances
  • Forest Ecosystem Services
  • Forest and the EU Bio-economy
  • Forests and climate change
