SINCERE: Spurring Innovations for forest eCosystem sERvices in Europe
SINCERE is a four-year project funded through the European Commission’s Horizon2020 programme. SINCERE will develop novel policies and new business models by connecting knowledge and expertise from practice, science and policy, across Europe and beyond.
An international Learning Architecture will facilitate continuous collaborative learning from the project’s innovation actions, located in nine regions in Europe and two international cases in Peru and Russia. Innovations developed through SINCERE will be intentionally varying in nature but will, as a whole, aim to explore new means to enhance forest ecosystem services in ways that benefit forest owners as well as serving broad societal needs.
SINCERE’s research will also contribute to the development of a coordinated European policy framework to maximise the value of forest ecosystem services and their sustainable provision to society.
