DescriptionForest and Nature for Society (FONASO) is a three-year world-class Joint Doctoral Programme. FONASO is part of the Erasmus Mundus programme initiated by the European Commission to enhance and promote European higher education throughout the world. The language of the programme is English. The main objective of the FONASO programme is to educate the leaders of the future generation of researchers, teachers and top management staff working with sustainable forest and nature management, in both tropical and temperate regions, to ensure wider societal benefits. Within forest and nature management, the programme is focused on the scientific fields of (i) economics and policy, and (ii) ecology and silviculture. The emphasis is on applied research. The FONASO programme builds on the expertise of seven European universities: University of Copenhagen (Denmark), Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Sweden), Bangor University (UK), Dresden University of Technology (Germany), University of Göttingen (Germany), AgroParisTech-ENGREF (France), and University of Padova (Italy). There are also several associate partners: University of British Columbia (Canada), James Cook University (Australia), Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR, Indonesia), World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF, Kenya), Dalhoff Larsen & Hornemann A/S (Denmark). The FONASO associate partners may act as hosts for thesis fieldwork and provide input to or conduct doctoral candidate courses. The associate partners - which each hold specific knowledge and have access to unique networks and infrastructure - may also be involved in defining research topics and as co-supervisors.
