About FORMEC

FORMEC symposium is the world's largest scientific forest engineering network.

 

The Symposium “Forestry Mechanization” (from 1994 named with the acronym “FORMEC”) was held for the first time in 1966 at Zvolen in former Czechoslovakia. The original idea of the organizers of this scientific meeting was to give an opportunity for scientists from Eastern and Central European countries to gather, discuss about forest engineering matters, deepen the knowledge in that field of science and overcome gaps due to different technology levels.

Since then 49 meetings have been organized. The more recent meetings were held in Poland (2016), Austria (2015) and France (2014), and gathered more than 200 leading professionals and expert scientists each year, facilitating and encouraging the cooperation and the exchange of ideas.
