EUFODOS stands for European Forest Downstream Services-Improved Information on Forest Structure and Damages. These monitoring services urgently required by regional European forest authorities will be developed to an operational level by a consortium of research organisations and commercial service providers from Austria, Germany, Finland, Italy, Bulgaria and Poland from January 2011 to the end of 2013.

The GMES Forest Downstream Services (FDS) to be developed within EUFODOS include in particular the assessment of forest damage and the measurement of functional parameters for commercial and protection forests.
