SUMFOREST stands for: SUstainable forest management; Multifunctional Forestry, European Forest Policy. Climatic and environmental changes lead to socio-economic and land-use changes and pose challenges for multifunctional demands on European forest resources and their sustainable management.
European forests consist of a wide tree species and ecosystem diversity with different goods and services. Thus, they are affected differently by climate and land-use changes. The current forest policy environment in the European Union and the formulation of forest policies is fragmented, complex and sometimes contradictory.
The aim of this transnational ERA-NET is reinforcing scientific cooperation on European forests, which will also build new cooperation arrangements with EU neighbourhood regions, aiming at a reduced fragmentation and maximised impact of research activities on sustainable forest management and multifunctional forestry.
