The FORESTERRA International Project “Enhancing FOrest RESearch in the MediTERRAnean through improved coordination and integration”, project number 291832, is part of the ERA-NET initiative. FORESTERRA aims to reinforce the scientific coordination and integration of Mediterranean forest research programmes as well as scientific cooperation with Mediterranean-area countries (including EU and non-EU member states) and with countries from other Mediterranean Climate Areas (MCA) in this case, Australia, South Africa, Chile and California.
FORESTERRA has been a key project for reinforcing scientific cooperation on Mediterranean forests through a transnational Mediterranean ERA-Net, and was also able to build a new and strong transcontinental cooperation among Mediterranean Climate Areas. We were able to reduce fragmentation and maximize the impact of research activities and the exchange of information. Foresterra strategic aim was to reinforce the scientific coordination and integration of Mediterranean programmes in forest research as well as the scientific cooperation with countries of the Mediterranean area and with countries from other Mediterranean Climate areas.
