I am invited as a keynote speaker at the FORESTERRA FINAL CONFERENCE, Lisbon, Portugal: “The impact of climate change on forest ecosystems”.
FORESTERRA “Enhancing FOrest RESearch in the MediTERRAnean through improved coordination and integration” is an ERA-NET project funded by the European Union under the FP7 Programme. FORESTERRA aims to reinforce the scientific coordination and integration of Mediterranean forest research programmes as well as the 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. The project started in January 2012 and will finish in December 2015. FORESTERRA has partners from twelve countries: Spain, France, Italy, Turkey, Portugal, Tunisia, Morocco, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece and Algeria, as well as two international institutions, the European Forest Institute (EFI) and the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM).
