Working group 4 and 5 Precision Forestry and Forest Ecology Open call for Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM). We want to fund a set of STSM projects focussed on topics around 3D close range technologies for either Precision Forestry (WP4) or Forest Ecology (WP5). Successful projects must clearly focus on addressing questions within precision forestry or...

We are thrilled to announce an exciting new research initiative within the framework of 3DForEcoTech COST Action, focusing on the transformative potential of Close-range Remote Sensing (CRRS) technology for ecosystem studies. 3DForEcoTech is a collaborative effort bringing together researchers, industry professionals, and enthusiasts in the field of Close-range Remote Sensing. Our mission is to explore,...

Dear 3DForEcoTech community, it is already two years since we started the 3DForEcoTech COST Action project. I already see the huge impact these years have had on me and on many others. When we were writing the project proposal, I had in my mind that the goal should be to create a strong enough motion...
