ForEAdapt (Knowledge exchange between Europe and America on forest growth models and optimization for adaptive forestry) is an exchange project supported by a Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme within the 7th European Community Framework Programme (FP7-PEOPLE-2009-IRSES).

ForEAdapt is focused on forestry and climate change interactions, including the development of adaptive forest management tools. The seven countries involved (i.e. Portugal, Finland, Spain, Sweden, Chile, Brazil and USA) share key tree species of common interest and a range of similar biogeographic conditions, from Mediterranean to Nordic or alpine, which is very relevant in the context of climate change. The strategic importance of managed and planted forests for multiple purposes is also common to the countries involved, and will provide an extremely relevant and coherent framework and socio-economic background for the different research activities that will be conducted in the project.
