Non-IUFRO Awards


BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards

The current nomination period concludes at 23:00 GMT on June 30, 2022.

The BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards recognize fundamental contributions  in a broad array of areas of scientific knowledge, technology, humanities and artistic creation. Ecology and Conservation Biology, and Climate Change are the two most obvious categories for forest scientists. The Climate Change award recognizes both research endeavors in confronting this challenge and impactful actions informed by the best science.

Candidates may be one or more natural persons of any nationality, without limitation of number, that have made independent or convergent contributions to a given advance, whether due to a formal collaboration (with the nominees belonging to one or more groups) or parallel working. The awards are also open to scientific or cultural organizations that can be collectively credited with exceptional contributions to scientific knowledge, cultural creation or the fight against climate change.



Prestigious Awards for former IUFRO officeholder from Japan

The Japanese Forest Society bestows an award to Dr. Mariko Inoue of FFPRI.

In March Dr. Mariko Inoue of the Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute (FFPRI) Japan received an award for her work "Forest education for sustainable use of natural resources" from the Japanese Forest Society. Dr. Inoue is one of the first female scientists to receive this award.

Mariko has led the study of forest education in Japan. She has systematically and theoretically reviewed vocational, professional, and environmental education for the general public including children. She argues that more practical applications for a sustainable society should be taken into consideration and in addition launched some forest education practices for the general public.

Dr. Inoue is a former Deputy Coordinator of IUFRO Research Group 6.09.00 - Forest Education and, through IUFRO, raised awareness for forest education in Japan to the international community.
