Presentation of the project

The PROFORBIOMED project is a strategic MED project under the transational European Territorial Cooperation programme, that meets the objective 2.2. : "Promoting renewable energy and improving energy efficiency."

The project is linked to the promotion of the use of renewable energies by the development of an integrated strategy for the use of the forest biomass as a renewable energy source that demonstrates, apply and transfer sustainable management systems adapted to the different MED forest conditions.

The strategy relies on the valorization of the forests and their consideration as potential source of incomes in rural areas that need proper management and maintenance (in environmental terms). It implies the involvement of all stakeholders of rural areas, the development of clusters and networks and the strengthening of the cooperation between public and private actors, developing political and social commitments and joint initiatives.
