Protecting the Forest Resource: Risk assessment and Management using Innovative Tools

EFIPLANT and IEFC, together with the Waterford Institute of Technology, are organising an international summer school entitled "Protecting the Forest Resource: Risk assessment and Management using Innovative Tools" following the very successful inaugural summer school in June 2017. The summer school will be held in Waterford, Ireland from 24-28 June 2019 and hosted by Waterford Institute of Technology.

The focus of the summer school will be on tools for protecting the planted forest resource from different hazards. There will be talks, demonstrations, and training in the use of the latest tools and techniques for assisting modern forestry professionals in making informed forestry risk management decisions. The course will include lectures, field work training, demonstrations and hands-on use of different tools in the field and the laboratory.

The workshop is primarily focused at professional foresters, forest consultants, managers and owners, forestry policy makers, and postgraduate-level students. We expect up to 50 attendees from around the world who will taught by more than 20 internationally recognised experts in the field of forest risk management.
