Forest Research

Rendering support to Forest Research has been defined as one of the main KIRFOR project components from the very beginning, since everywhere forestry is based on scientifically defined technical norms and recommendations.
The soviet institutional set up gave an important space to the research in the institutional environment, as the warrant for proper and correct scientific contents in the approved practical guidelines. In 1995, the situation in forest research was especially difficult. There was no equipment, minimum funding and growing old age personnel. Situation which did not improved significantly until today.

Research was based on a partnership with the Forest research Institute, the Swiss federal technology institute in Zurich and other institutions.
