NETWORK: ECOMED AND TECMINE LIFE PROJECTS

ECOMED and TECMINE are two projects of the European LIFE programme that have found common ground that can strengthen the results of both projects.

The aim of ECOMED is to generate a sector-specific theoretical and practical syllabus essential for the specialization process of the Mediterranean Ecoengineering sector. 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. Training courses programme focuses on soil and fluvial ecoengineering, hazard assessment and techniques selection in mediterranean environment.

The general objective of TECMINE is to improve mine restoration in forest areas by testing new restoration techniques that deal with environmental and social issues not fully addressed by traditional techniques.

Guillermo Tardío, member of ECOMED, participated in the Expert Panel organised by TECMINE advising on EcoEngineering techniques on soil stabilisation that could be used successfully in mining restoration.

In the future, it is expected to carry out collaborations between ECOMED and TECMINE, creating an efficient and fluid communication network.
