ANFTA is involved in a range of national and international research projects. As such, ANFTA has developed a core curriculum for the training of Forest Therapy Guides conforming and setting international standards. This has been accomplished in 2017 through national and international collaborations, most noticeably with the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, one of the 11 elite universities in Germany (Medical Faculty, Department of Medial Informatics, Biometry and Epimediology, Chair of Public Health and Health Services Research).
