FORMASAM 2nd Meeting

The Second FORMASAM meeting took place from 27-29th of March 2019 at IRSTEA, Grenoble in France. The main topics discussed at the meeting were the refinement of the forest management scenario framework development within FORMASAM and then the operationalisation of these management scenarios at the stand-, landscape- and EU-scale. The 35 participants also greatly enjoyed a field trip to visit typical mountain forests and discuss forest management challenges with the local managers from the french forest service (ONF). We are grateful to everybody who participated in the meeting and more information about the meeting as well as the presentations can be found below.
