The Forest Engineering Network


In the context of the need for a more environmental friendly and climate-resilient economy as expressed by the Paris COP21 agreement, Transilvania University of Braşov - Faculty of Silviculture and Forest Engineering is proud to host the Jubilee Edition of the International Symposium on Forestry Mechanization (FORMEC) between 25th and 29th September 2017, in Braşov (Romania).

The motto of the conference is:

“Innovating the competitive edge: from research to impact in the forest value chain”

The 50th FORMEC anniversary will bring together leading researchers, practitioners and high-level officials from countries worldwide to share state-of-the-art knowledge and debate the most critical issues on how innovation should enhance sustainable wood mobilization and forest value chain competitiveness. The conference will address key topics in the fields of bioenergy, innovative technology and forestry mechanization, timber logging, forest road engineering, wood transport, ergonomics, work safety and other wood supply chain challenges. 

The meeting consists of two days of technical sessions on new developments in forest engineering, followed by one day field trip in the Romanian forests to watch traditional and innovative harvesting technology at work.
