SIFI has been given the responsibility
This project page compiles material used for Sweden’s application of the the IUFRO world congress 2019. SIFI has been given responsibility for coordinating the preparations behind the application. The Stockholm Convention Bureau has supported with the budget and the compilation of the application. SLU will take on the hosting of the World Congress. SIFI has arranged a meeting and created a national IUFRO group to support the application process and in the future to support the Swedish involvement in IUFRO. In the light of this background the application looks promising.
