From 17. to 22. September 2017 I took part in the IUFRO 125th Anniversary Congress in Freiburg, Germany. IUFRO stands for International Union of Forest Research Organization and is the oldest scientific union in the world. This congress presents the state of the art in forest research, development and practice. I have tried to sum up what I learned at the congress in 10 points.
Next Tuesday, I will be presenting at the webinar titled: “Building a bridge between scientists and communicators”. You are cordially invited to participate :) (visit the blog post below).

Nothing in science has any value to society if it is not communicated,

Anne Roe, The Making of a Scientist (1953)
Or should it be:
Do not share your inventions with many,
share them only with the few who understand and love the sciences.
Filippo Brunelleschi (15th century)
