Research Topic A

Abstract of the proposed UNIPhD research project


Her proposed research project will investigate ecosystem services at a regional scale in the EU bioeconomy, with a focus on socially innovative green care. She will attempt to understand the different ecosystem services generated from green care. Moreover, she will use economic techniques to try to estimate values for the ecosystem services produced, and in particular cultural ecosystem services. The main aim of her research is to investigate the topic of green care through an economic lens, in terms of values and impacts.
