Short Scientific Visits

Short Scientific visits provide a unique opportunity for those starting out in their careers to get involved in international level forest research and cooperation, to learn new techniques and to use methods and tools not available in their own institution.

Such visits also strengthen the EFIMED network by facilitating new transnational collaboration. 

Short Scientific Visits are also awarded to the winner of the Best Poster presented at the Annual EFIMED Scientific Seminar.


Nine posters were presented for the session “Perspectives from young scientists” on the theme of the Scientific Seminar. Each young researcher had 1.5 minutes to present their poster after which there was a debate amongst them with questions from the audience.

The Prize for the best poster was presented to Niovi Zarkada of EMaTTech, Greece for her poster on “ Wastewater treatment via constructed wetlands: Effectiveness of a pilot hybrid system in removal of nutrients”.
