  • The knowledge that I have about the European country and their system is a valuable asset for me as a person who came from Africa. It’s a great opportunity to study abroad, to know more advance sciences and to absorb the values of European culture. Everything is well organised and personal problems are paid great attention. It will definitely help since my background is forestry and natural resource management and I have worked in this field in Nepal and in India. Now this Masters in European forestry will help me to be influential in the European arena. European countries are doing much more in the forestry sector. But, in developing countries forest protection and the livelihood of the people is only one theme of forest management. So, I would like to learn how we could manage our forest as productive forest commercially in a sustainable manner.

Development of models, methods and decision support systems to address current challenges (e.g. climate change, multiple demands, collaborative needs, participatory concerns) faced by all actors involved in forest ecosystem management planning and land-use planning (e.g. non-industrial forest owners, the forest industry, the public administration and non-governmental organizations).

Inhalte

MEDfOR is a 2-year Master programme (120 ECTS) encompassing 3 semesters of coursework plus a Winter School and 1 semester to prepare the Master dissertation. This design (Figure below) complies with the Bologna qualification standards (2nd Cycle). Thus it facilitates comparability and compatibility of studies within the European educational area as well as the acquisition of competences in global educational markets.

This design as well as its mandatory mobility component (Figure below) will be influential to set standards for an effective education-to-research-and-innovation strategy and to overcome current fragmentation of Forestry Higher Education in the Mediterranean region .

Students are required to spend at least one semester to complete 30-ECTS in at least two institutions in two different countries. Moreover they will meet in a joint Winter School that will take place in the 2nd semester.

  • Multiple criteria decision support systems for Mediterranean forest management planning in UTL
  • Mediterranean forest ecology and climate change – past and future scenarios in UTL
  • Addressing risks in Mediterranean forest management planning-the case of fire in UL
  • Adaptive forestry strategies to provide good and services while coping with global change challenge in UV
  • Advanced tools for sustainable management of Mediterranean forests in UT
