Conference on Smart Mediterranean Forestry, bioeconomy and social integration (Calabria, 7-9 Novembre 2016)

Join us for the EFIMED Week 2016 this autumn (7-9 November, 2016) in Calabria (Popilia resort, Località Cutà, Maierato, VV ). This year´s event is titled: Smart Mediterranean Forestry, bioeconomy and social integration.

We’ll explore how Mediterranean forests could better contribute to the creation of livelihoods, jobs and social opportunities for rural inhabitants and migrants, while also helping address other key challenges, such as energy, water and food security, mitigation and nature conservation.

Come and learn about examples of social forestry in Calabria and in other regions, meet the EFIMED Network and help us identify the critical factors for the creation of a forest-based, sustainable and equitable Mediterranean bioeconomy!

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present a poster. Posters may be submitted as one of two types:

Authors will be invited to give a 1-minute plenary presentation of their poster during the Scientific Seminar.
