Quality of education and further education play a key role for the quality of research as well as practical work in forestry. Therefore it is essential to deal with measures of raising the quality of education and with methods to evaluate the success of education and further education. This is a field for research as well as implementation. It will be covered by Research Group 6.15.00 within IUFRO Division VI, which was established after the IUFRO World Congress 1995 in Tampere, and is now Research Group 6.09.00.
