Corporate concept 2016-2020

Continuity needs change

With the existing corporate concept for 2011-2015, the Federal Research Centre für Wald (BFW) has initiated a permanent development process. The pre-programm is based on continuity, but at the same time is deleting the strategic BFW's objectives, market-relevant core competencies and unique selling points.
