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.
“Travellab in Zvolen was very valuable to get a better understanding about the case study area in Slovakia. It is a great approach to allow interaction with local stakeholders and to learn more about their perspectives on forest management.” Dr. Nataly Jürges, ALTERFOR-project partner / Georg-August-University Göttingen, Germany
