We think that development processes are based on the frame of the academic and scientific education.

Countries development level depends on the skills and capacities of its human resources and the creation of opportunities for understanding and collaborating between academic and scientific institutions.

The establishment of collaboration links between Europe and developing countries is an important support in this process. That is why the identification, formulation and implementation of projects for international cooperation and development with participation of universities and scientific cooperation is an important field of work for IDAF.

We try to stimulate the processes of academic and scientific cooperation as a necessary strategy to promote proper development of the forestry sector. Our objective is transferring the knowledge generated in universities and technology centers to countries and regions which do not have easy access to this knowledge.
