One of the main objectives of the Finnish Society of Forest Science is to distribute widely the results of forest research. An important channel for reaching this objective is the annual Forest Science Day. It offers a timely review to the newest results of forest research and promotes discussions between scientists and actors of practical forestry. Forest Science Day has each year a timely general topic. We invite 3 – 4 renowned scientists of the topic to deliver keynote talks in the plenary session. We also publish an open call for proposal for the concurrent sessions. Each year, 20 – 25 voluntary talks are given in five concurrent sessions. The event is open for all public. The Forest Science Day is to most important annual gathering of forest scientists, developers of science applications, and all others interested in new knowledge on forests in Finland.
Forest Science Day is organised with support from the foundation Metsämiesten säätiö.
