The research project "Monitoring of small-scale forest owners in South Tyrol" targets to establish a monitoring system for forest economic figures based on sample small-scaled forest farms. This for three years approved project enables in cooperation with the already existing small-scale forestry system in Austria an annual analysis for the participating farms. The expectation on that long-term orientated monitoring project for the South Tyrolean small-scale forestry is to create among the forest owners awareness to mobilize a bigger amount of timber and to manage the forests sustainably. Above all, the cross-company evaluation for the sector enables the small-scale forest owners to assess transparently their expenditures and revenues. Besides, the time-series data of the periodically determined forest economic parameters deliver a fundamental basis for decision-making on forest policy measures. These periodically elaborated statistics among small-scale forest holders, the cross-company evaluations and time-series data enable a benchmark comparison to depict potentials or deficits in the production processes.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
