The Forestry and Forests Products Research Institute (FFPRI) of Japan and IUFRO signed a Memorandum of Understanding in August 2018. FFPRI and IUFRO have cooperated and disseminated information that links with global issues for a sustainable society since 1905. The MoU aims to identify further opportunities for collaboration, knowledge generation and knowledge sharing.

During its history of over 110 years, FFPRI has been conducting interdisciplinary research on forests, forestry, the timber industry, and tree breeding with a view towards realizing a sustainable society.
