The monitoring of Nordic landscapes is important both in a national and an international context. The Nordic region has much in common regarding physical conditions, cultural historical development and biodiversity status that partly differ from the rest of Europe.
We still lack systematic and scientific harmonization between existing and planned national and European classification systems to meet demands for sustainable development and its monitoring. There is a rising demand for research training of younger researchers who will benefit from a Nordic network.
