This year the Winter School ran from 10th to 28th January 2022.

1st year students who started the Master Programme MEDfOR in the University of Lleida (Spain), University of Lisbon (Portugal) and University of Padua (Italy), in 2021/2022, got together during a 3-week intensive course in Palencia, Spain, at University of Valladolid.

The Winter School promotes students and scholars mobility, fosters an integrative view of Mediterranean forestry, promotes multidisciplinary exchange between all participants and facilitates the communication between scholars and students. The underlying theme of the Winter School organized by the University of Valladolid is “Mediterranean Forestry: the asymmetric impact of Global Change on Mediterranean Forests”. It integrates two seminars: i) "Model Forest Concept" and ii) "Forest Biological Threats (pest and invasive species) and climate change" – that includes fieldwork. It further encompasses the Annual Young Researchers Meeting.

Most students met for the first time during Winter School!
