SMURF Project
The SMURF project, aligned with the EU's Forest Strategy, promotes sustainable forest management through innovative Closer to Nature Sylviculture practices (CNS) and a harmonized European Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) system.

This project is granted by the European Research Executive Agency (REA) under the Horizon Europe program.
