General information and objectives

The ERU SuLu aims at (1) providing ready-to-use cutting-edge land-use modeling techniques that rely on empirical site data (see other ERUs), remote sensing and data-mining techniques, which allow for land-use modeling at different temporal and spatial scales (up-scaling); (2) innovative strategies for improving and maintaining ecosystem integrity and sustainable management of biodiversity hot spots (e.g. forests, creeks) and economically important landscape types (e.g. mountain regions for tourism); (3) decision support for sustainable management in mountain environments and peri-urban areas. The ERU’s major achievement in the first four years will be the establishment of a research and educational network between the four partners that builds upon an international audience of students, post-docs and visiting scientists. This network will allow us to develop the necessary conceptual and methodological linkages between SuLu research projects.
