Silvicultural research to support the EU Green Deal

— filed under:

Within the framework of the EU research and innovation program “Horizon 2020,” the European Union is funding 73 research projects in support of the European Green Deal - scientists from the University of Freiburg are involved in two of them: “SUPERB – Systemic Solutions For Upscaling Urgent Ecosystem Restoration For Forest Related Biodiversity And Ecosystem Services” and “PAUL – Pilot Application In Urban Landscapes, Towards Integrated City Observatories For Greenhouse Gases.” 

SUPERB aims to create a sustainable environment for a shift towards large-scale forest restoration and forest landscapes in the context of climate change. The forest restoration targets biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services, including climate protection. The project will empower decision-makers in different regions of Europe to implement recovery measures as quickly as possible, based on a scientific basis and together with stakeholders. The European Forest Institute (EFI) in Finland is coordinating the project. It will start in December 2021 and run for four years. From the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of the University of Freiburg, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Bauhus and Dr. Metodi Sotirov are involved. SUPERB will receive 20 million euros, of which 732,500 euros will be allocated to the University of Freiburg.
