 Description of RTD activities
Institute of Lowland Forestry Novi Sad (ILFE) (former Poplar Research Institute ) was established in 1958. The Institute employs 18 researchers of which 7 are PhD (forestry, agriculture, mechanical and chemical processing of wood), 8 MSc (forestry, agriculture) and 3 BSc (junior researchers in forestry and biology). The research in the Institute is dealing with both biological, ecological and environmental characteristics and growth improvement lowland woody species (poplar, willow, black locust, Pedunculate oak, narrow-leaved ash and wild cherry). The research is carried out through several scientific disciplines, as follows: Genetics with plant breeding, physiology, mechanical and chemical processing of wood and biomass, phytoremediation, nursery production, soil science, silviculture, protection against pest and diseases, herbology, agroforestry, forest inventory and GIS. The Institute has a very close cooperation with the State Forest Enterprise “Vojvodinasume“ and Water Management Enterprise “Vode Vojvodine” which applies the latest technologies of growing poplars, willows, European oak, narrow-leaved ash and also black locust. The vision is that the Institute will become the leading scientific research institution in the creation and application of the new technologies in lowland forestry and agro-forestry production systems in the region of Western Balkan Countries.
