NB Forest alive at Baltic Development Forum in Copenhagen
In the middle of a green, lush spruce-birch forest filled with wild animals, cones, stumps and seed samples, NB Forest had established an information stand at the Baltic Development Forum June 18-19 2012 to get in touch with its target groups; researchers, end-users and potential future collaborators in forest research around the Baltic Sea.

NB Forest is a research-based information portal on Nordic and Baltic forests and forestry. NB Forest acts in the Baltic Sea region, filling the gap between existing national and global information portals on forests and forest research. The information stand was staffed by EFINORD and SNS and was well visited during the two-day conference. Judged by the many comments and questions received during the Baltic Development Forum, NB Forest is on the right track by offering a platform for sharing knowledge, where each country can draw on the other countries’ experiences within a specific research field. These fields of research are often so specialized that countries might not alone have the capacity sustain research and development.

NB Forest is part of the flagship on sustainable forestry in the EU Strategy on the Baltic Sea Region and receives funding from the Nordic Council of Ministers as well as in-kind contributions from forest research institutions in the region.
The stand of NB Forest at the Baltic development Forum was by many visitors claimed to be “the nicest stand of the whole conference”. We had many good talks with researchers, decision makers and organizations during the 2-day conference.
