Phase IV 2010-2014

Instead of the large networks, in Phase IV EUFORGEN started to act through small working groups of about ten experts and larger workshops.

The Steering Committee established five working groups on the following topics:

The working groups carried out their tasks -- supported by workshops for broader consultation -- and presented their findings and recommendations to the Steering Committee, which reviewed and endorsed the final reports. The EUFGIS information system, launched in 2010, provides geo-referenced and standardized data on the genetic conservation units of forest trees across Europe and a network of National Focal Points was created and trained to compile and upload data into the EUFGIS database. The project ended in 2011, since when the portal has been maintained and further developed by EUFORGEN. At the end of Phase IV, the EUFGIS database contained 3200 genetic conservation units of about 100 tree species in 34 countries.
