The project

Uforest (full name “European Alliance on Interdisciplinary Learning and Business Innovation for Urban Forests Project) is a three-year Knowledge Alliance project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission. The project promotes a cross-sectoral alliance that brings together universities, businesses and public administrations of often non-collaborative disciplines such as urban planning and architecture, with forestry and urban ecology, as well as with socio-economic and information and communication technologies (ICT). The alliance is the basis for the development of new training and it supports to students and practitioners working towards innovative urban forestry projects.
