The University of Valladolid participate through the Sustainable Forest Management Research Institute in the MEDFOR ErasmusMundus Master Program. Our participation is coordinated by the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenierías Agrarias at Palencia.
MEDfOR - Mediterranean Forestry and Natural Resources Management is a two-year world-class Erasmus Mundus Master Course Programme that answers a call for a coordinated approach throughout the Mediterranean basin to develop reliable information and tools - based on sound science and a multidisciplinary approach, in order to improve Mediterranean forestry and natural resources management and policy-making.
The MEDfOR emphasis is on educating the leaders of the future generation of engineers, managers, researchers, and teachers involved in Mediterranean forestry and natural resources management. MEDfOR equips students with a solid scientific habilitation and the competences for careers in innovative fields of work within the Mediterranean forestry supply chain. It will both provide the basis needed for students to pursue academic opportunities (e.g. PhD program) and the qualifications needed to fill positions in all Mediterranean forestry supply chain segments (e.g. forestry and natural resources organizations, either public or private, either national or international).
MEDfOR is organized by a Consortium that includes seven globally top ranked universities with complementary expertise to address the Mediterranean forestry supply chain key challenge and Consultation Panel that integrated organizations from the Mediterranean Basin.
MEDfOR is part of the Erasmus Mundus Programme initiated by the European Commission. The Erasmus Mundus Programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education that aims to enhance the quality of European higher education and promote intercultural understanding.
