The project "Virtualization of Forest Studies - VirtualForests", under the Erasmus+ program, Key Action 2: Strategic Partnerships, aims to develop and share innovative digital-based educational tools, platforms, teaching methods and frameworks in forest ecosystem studies. 

The project is coordinated by the University of Valladolid and involves the Cesefor Foundation (Spain), Hanoi University of Science, Vietnam National University Hanoi (Vietnam), Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development (Germany), Institut Européen de la Forêt Cultivée (France) and Institut National des Sciences et Industries du Vivant et de L'environnement - AGROPARISTECH (France).

VirtualForests will contribute to improve the teaching of forest ecosystem studies by developing open educational resources and innovative learning practices to adapt teaching to situations such as those experienced with the COVID 19 pandemic. In addition, cooperation and networking between the partners and other relevant organizations and stakeholders will be strengthened. Education and training is targeted for students and professionals at different levels and stages of professional development to promote equity, diversity and inclusion in learning.
