Ecoengineering is a technical and scientific discipline that combines technology and biology, making use of plants and plant communities for protecting soil and infrastructures, and contribute to landscape development. It matches technical (protection and stabilisation), ecological (eco-systemic restoration), landscape (improve the landscape integration) and socioeconomic (more efficient and source of employment).
The aim of this project is to generate a sector-specific theoretical and practical syllabus essential for the specialization process of the Mediterranean Ecoengineering sector. Also, to jointly develop a long term interaction scheme among the stakeholders of the ecoengineering sector and to deliver a training courses programme technology enhanced in “Soil and Fluvial ecoengineering, Hazard Assessment and Techniques Selection in Mediterranean Environment”. This new syllabus will be generated during the implementation of the long term strategy of the proposal “Specialisation process for the ecoengineering sector in the Mediterranean environment (ECOMED)”
In this project, which will be carried out during 2017 and 2018, we have 14 partners: 5 universities, 1 research center, 1 technical institute and 7 specialized companies from 8 countries (Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Greece, United Kingdom, Turkey and Macedonia):
Technical University of Madrid (ES), Istituto Istruzione Superiore Enrico Fermi (IT), Technologiko Ekpedeftiko Idrima (EL), Universidade de Evora (PT), Istanbul Universitesi (TU), The Glasgow Caledonian University (UK), Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (FR), Jemmduild (IT), Sangalli Coronel y Asociados (ES), EcoSalix (PT), Naturalea (ES), Astrolabe Engineering (EL), I.C.E. Ingénieur-Comseil en Environnement-Klaus Peklo (FR) y GEING Krebs und Kiefer International & others (MK).
