The IUFRO-EFI Young Scientists Initiative (YSI), launched at the IUFRO 125th Anniversary Congress, is the latest collaboration between IUFRO and the European Forest Institute (EFI). It will offer grants for short scientific visits starting from 2018.
An opportunity for five young scientists from Africa, Asia and Latin America to conduct collaborative research in Europe as of 2018 is now available. The YSI will entail a short scientific visit to be hosted by a European forest science organization where the grantee will work on a scientific collaboration with another European scientist.
IUFRO and EFI are offering EUR 5 000 per grantee. There are five positions available now and the application period will close on the 31st of December 2017.
