Partners in the FORESTERRA-ERA Net project have collaborated on an exercise to map and characterise the existing forestry funding programmes and forestry research capacities of the countries participating in the Consortium, which brings together 12 Mediterranean countries.
The mapping survey used two methods: i) dedicated questionnaires addressed to funding bodies and scientific organizations and ii) an ad-hoc poster session aimed at exchanging information and validating preliminary results, attended by delegates from participating countries.
Funding, research capacities and research lines were characterised in order to identify complementarities, overlaps, gaps, strengths and weaknesses in forest research, in order to provide strategic guidance to the FORESTERRA network for future cooperation and forest research coordination activities.
The FORESTERRA Consortium thanks the participation of funding bodies and scientific organisations for their dedication and help with these mapping research activities.
