  2. 2. All started sometimes in July 2010: The call… ‘Research infrastructures for forestry research: A project under this topic must provide and facilitate access to the key research infrastructures in Europe for forestry research. It should aim to integrate these facilities and resources with a long term perspective. The overall objective should be to improve services for researchers working on sustained and multi-functional production of the forests goods and services as well as climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, and preservation of biodiversity in industrial forests’Trees4Future Orléans, January 18, 2012: kick-off meeting
  3. 3.
