FVA - The Forest Research Institute Baden-Wuerttemberg

The Forest Research Institute Baden-Wuerttemberg (FVA) is the research facility of the German state Baden-Wuerttemberg and is therefore assigned to the Ministry for Nutrition and Rural areas in Stuttgart. The FVA developed out of the Badish Forest Research Facility in Karlsruhe, which was established in 1870, and the Wuerttembergish Forest Research Facility in Stuttgart-Hohenheim established in 1872 and exists in its current form in Freiburg im Breisgau since 1958. A close and mutual cooperation within the framework of the so-called "Freiburg-Model" exists between the FVA and theFaculty for Forest and Environmental Science at the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg. This cooperation expresses itself amongst other things in combined colloquiums, a joint journal series and the initiation of cooperative research projects. Employees of the FVA are also active in the university's teaching programme within the forestry faculty. However, whilst the university carries out predominantly basic research, the FVA administrates practical research and development for the Forest Service and forest enterprises. Many projects are thus carried out in close cooperation with the other Forest Research Institutes in Germany or neighbouring countries (e.g. Austria or Switzerland). In addition, university institutes in, and outside of Freiburg are regularly amongst the partners of the FVA. Additionally, employees of the FVA are represented in numerous national and international consultation and decision-making bodies.

What impact does increasing international competition and the demand for bio energy have on prices for food products? What are the effects of climate change have on agricultural, forest and aquatic ecosystems? What processes would allow the non-food sector to use renewable resources in a more efficient manner? These questions give an impression of the broad of spectrum of #topics they work on. They conduct research for policy makers and the society. They provide political decision makers with scientifically-based decision-making aids on the basis of our own research results. They take a long-term approach to research and continually carry out monitoring activities. This allows them to obtain valuable statistical series. Moreover, they can call on professional expertise at any time. They represent German interests in international scientific commissions and bodies. Results of their work flow into guidelines and standards as well as into regulations and legislation. Their work contributes to securing the sustainable use of natural resources, serves economic development, and ensures the quality of life for our society.
