Research focus on forest and health

Cooperation between LMU and TUM in the field of "Forests and Health

In March 2018, the Chair of Forest and Environmental Policy at the Technical University of Munich under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dr. Michael Suda established a research cooperation with the Department of Medical Climatology under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dr. A. Schuh at the Chair of Public Health and Health Care Research (IBE) of the LMU Munich. The aim of the cooperation is to work together in the field of "Forest and Health". Coordinated research and development projects will form the basis for evidence-based cooperation in order to put the topic on a solid and scientifically sound footing. In addition, joint publications, conferences and further training courses will further investigate the topic.
