Success of Polish researchers in the ForestValue Joint Call 2017

Thursday, 13 December 2018

We are pleased to announce that the I-MAESTRO project, involving researchers from Poland, has been awarded funding within the “ForestValue – Innovating the forest-based bioeconomy” call for proposals. The Polish team, led by prof. Jarosław Socha from the University of Agriculture in Kraków, will cooperate with researchers from France, Germany and Slowenia. The project will be coordinated by the National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture (IRSTEA) from France.

The main aim of the project is to improve the scientific basis for developing management strategies that increase the resilience of the bioeconomy to future natural disturbances and climate change, while also maintaining a high level of wood production, carbon storage, and habitat quality for biodiversity.
