Think tank

The Forest Sciences Center of Catalonia (CTFC), based in Solsona (Lleida, Spain), began life in 1996 in the form of a consortium jointly run by Solsonès County Council, the University of Lleida, Lleida Provincial Council, the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation, the Integrated Rural Development Centre of Catalonia and the Government of Catalonia. CTFC's institutional mission is to contribute to the modernisation and competitiveness of the forestry sector, rural development and the sustainable management of the environment through research, training and technology and knowledge transfer to society. CTFC hosts the Laboratory of Functional Ecology and Global Change (ECOFUN), whose aim is to investigate the drivers of biodiversity, structural patterns and functional processes in grasslands, forests and other agro-ecosystems to develop ecological models and establish the basis for a sustainable management in the context of global change.
