SCION - The New Zealand Forest Research Institute Ltd

Partner 5



Scion has a long history of international scientific collaboration and exchanges in its traditional area of forestry research and wider interest area of biomaterials. It has staff members in chair or co-chair positions on a number of International Union of Forestry Research Organisations (IUFRO) working groups and is an active participant in the IEA Bioenergy tasks (38 - Greenhouse Gas, and 30 - Short Rotation Crops for bioenergy). Major formal collaborations most relevant to this proposal are with CSIRO in Australia through Ensis, a long standing collaboration with INRA in the forest biodiversity area, Forest Research (UK) on biosecurity and risk, and collaborations with Verenium in the USA and VTT in Finland in the bioenergy/biorefineries area. Scion Scientists have contributed to international Sustainable Forest Management initiatives, chairing the technical advisory committee of the Working Group for Sustainable Management and Conservation of Temperate and Boreal forests (The Montreal Process), and involvement in various UNFCC and IPCC technical committees and groups. Scion is a partner in COST (e.g. COST FP062 - Biotechnology for biorefineries – BIOBIO) under the new scheme for Australia and New Zealand.
