Alternative models and robust decision-making for future forest management
ALTERFOR explores the potential to optimize forest management models currently in use in different forested areas in European countries. The international consortium of scientists and forestry practicioners will examine alternative forest management models in ten case study areas. Each area represents different forest management practices and socio-ecological conditions across Europe. ALTERFOR is a large-scale, collaborative research project funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 research programme, coordinated by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), and involves twenty organisations from nine countries.
The Italian team organised the last cross-project meeting of the ALTERFOR partners in Padova, a medieval city with stunning atmosphere. The meeting took place on 3-5 April 2019 on the site of the oldest university botanical garden in the world.
