Description: The idea for this workshop began in 1996 when the folks in Quebec, faced with some unappealing fiscal realities that promised to devastate their provincial forest research capacity, held a meeting that convened representatives from research organizations around the world to share their experiences under similar circumstances. The meeting gathered senior research executives from England, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, and Sweden. The experiences and the messages were surprisingly similar and confirmed a disconcerting fact: that times are changing for R&D in forestry and if we are not willing to change to meet the challenges, we're toast! Further, it was clear that many would view this as a threat, not an opportunity, since the adjustments required to survive and thrive could appear quite radical for those grounded in tradition. Nonetheless, the meeting attendees took to heart the presentations and ensuing messages, and actions were proposed and taken.

Keywords: benchmarking, forest research, international forestry, leadership
