Regional Level

UNIMONT collaborates with local government bodies in Valcamonica, in Valtellina and in the main Lombard provinces with the aim of promoting the development of the mountainous areas which cover an area equal to 40.5% of the territory.

With its bachelor’s degree and the Ge.S.Di.Mont Research Center – UNIMONT is located in the heart of the Alpine chain, in the Camonica Valley, in Edolo in the province of Brescia: a small mountain town with less than 5,000 inhabitants. The pole was born from a long journey resulting from the collaboration between the local authorities (Municipality of Edolo, Consortium of BIM Municipalities of Valle Camonica, Province of Brescia, Union of Municipalities of the Orobie Brescian Alps and Montana Community of Valle Camonica) and the University of Studies from Milan.

We believe that the alliance and active collaboration with the local dimension is fundamental to understanding and adapting our research, dissemination and training activities in order to respond concretely to territorial needs.
