SNS has succesfully supported forest research networks for many years. The aim of SNS funded networks is to

  • Increase Northern European regional synergy within forest research by networking and joint utilisation of unique research facilities
  • Establish better contact between forest research communities in the Nordic – Baltic Sea region and the North Atlantic region
  • Strengthen Northern European forest research and networking in Europe
  • Encourage Northern European forest researchers to take part in pan-European and international projects

A network is funded for the duration of 1 year. A self financing component of at least 50% of the total budget of the network is required.

At the moment SNS supports two different kinds of networks:

  1. EFINORD – SNS networks, a collaboration with EFINORD
  2. SNS – NKJ networks, a collaboration with NKJ for the period 2015 – 2017
