The 13 partners representing 12 countries will work within the EUROPE-LAND project (Towards Sustainable Land-use Strategies in the Context of Climate Change and Biodiversity Challenges in Europe), which has received funding from the Horizon Europe programme in the amount of EUR 6.3 million. The PB budget is €373,000.

The EUROPE-LAND project will run for 48 months. The research team of the Bialystok University of Technology is made up of employees from the Faculty of Construction and Environmental Sciences and the Faculty of Management Engineering at the PB.

“The EUROPE-LAND project focuses on the integration of natural and social sciences in order to identify, develop, test and implement integrated tools to improve land-use decision-making, and to build awareness and stakeholder involvement in counteracting the effects of climate change and overcoming the challenges of declining biodiversity in Europe”, explains Prof. Joanna Ejdys from PB.
