All 20 partners from 14 different countries and representatives from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research & Innovation will gather for the first time.
SLU and the Department of Forest Resource Management, SLU Umeå, is the lead partner of INTEGRAL. The project has a duration of 4 years and has received funding by 7 million euro from the Seventh Framework Programme for Research within the area of Sustainable management of resources. All partners will cooperate to put forward a coherent policy process for integrated management of European forest landscapes. The challenge is to meet the different demands for ecosystem services.
“It is tremendously exciting to lead this venture which embraces the most important forest environments in Europe. The research will be applied in a total of 20 landscapes in 10 European countries that differ in key characteristics, such as ownership, the importance of forestry and forest-based industries and the priorities of allocation and management of new and existing forestlands. We will give the possibility to both local and national stakeholder groups all the way through the project, they play a decisive role, and I think this was a central element in the selecting of our project in tough competition with other applications”, says professor Ola Eriksson, project coordinator.

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.
Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...
Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.
Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...
