About the Hub
Many people, institutions and stakeholders work in and with protective forests. The Protective Forest Hub is a central contact point for skilled workers, forest owners, administration, students, science, and interested persons. The focus is on knowledge transfer, training and further training and on pooling of information and competences.
The Protective Forest Hub was launched in September 2020 and is operated by four partner organisations, each with specific expertise and decades of experience. The Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism is working together with the Austrian Federal Forests Corporation, the Federal Forest Research Center and the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna on a strong protective forest for the future!
Objectives of the Protective Forest Hub
The cooperation partners defined several objectives for the Protective Forest Hub. These are continuously adapted and supplemented. The main task are education and further education as well as the pooling of competences and knowledge.
