Memorandum of Understanding (MoU 018/13)          /           EuroCoppice on the COST website

COST Action FP1301 EuroCoppice, Oct 2013 - Oct 2017, brought together international scientists, experts and young scholars to exchange knowledge about coppice forestry and to begin to develop innovative management and utilization concepts/techniques for modern multifunctional coppice management systems.

The Management Committee comprised of representatives from 32 COST Member Countries, as well as Observers from 2 Near Neighbour Countries (NNC) and 1 International Partner Country (IPC).

The Action was divided into five Working Groups that produced numerable reports throughout the Action duration. Action Meetings were a valuable tool for discussing the content and publication of those publications.

Two of the funded activities, Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) and Training Schools (TS) were especially aimed at supporting young researchers.

In addition, multiple Action Conferences were organised by the Action, many presentations of which are available on the respective conference page. All Action Members were also involved in numerous Dissemination Activities for the Action and coppice topics.
