Skill-For.Action

Project description

Growing knowledge of forest carbon sequestration

Forests are important carbon pools that continuously exchange CO2 with the atmosphere. Global climate change, however, is weakening the efficiency of forest carbon sequestration capacity. In this context, the EU-funded Skill-For.Action project will bring together forest ecology research and the applied science of forest engineering to shed new light on the carbon dynamics in forests. It will focus on maintaining high carbon sequestration potential to guarantee economic, efficient and more ecologically sound forest operations. Overall, the project’s goal is to provide high-level training and education in adaptive and integrative forest management. An interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach will be followed, combining applied research and training activities and merging the educational experience of academic and non-academic supervisors.
