Adaptive BREEDING for productive, sustainable and resilient FORESTs under climate change

Funding : Europe H2020

Budget : € 6 478 662 (EC grant: € 6 000 000)

Summary :

B4EST is an EU-funded H2020 project which focuses on adaptive breeding for productive, sustainable and resilient forests under climate change.

Climate change can increase forest vulnerability to damage and disease, reduce forest health and productivity, and cause economic losses. B4EST’s goal is to increase forest survival, health, resilience and productivity under these circumstances, while maintaining genetic diversity and key ecological functions, and fostering a competitive EU bio-based economy.  B4EST aims to provide forest tree breeders, forest owners, managers and policy makers with better scientific knowledge to deal with these issues.
