Day 1 - Open seminar

We celebrated on June 7th an Open Seminar focused on Forest data acquisition and management, not only of forest roads but also for any data related to forest resources, infrastructures and equipment.

Access to the seminar -which took place in the PRAE building in Valladolid- was free and involved more than 40 professionals (technicians and representatives of public administrations, universities and private forestry companies) and with the intervention of 16 speakers from six European countries. The Junta de Castilla y León and the Institute for Research in Sustainable Forest Management, iuFOR (University of Valladolid) collaborated with the development of this meeting.
