Mountain areas are, now more than ever, a heritage of inestimable value due both to their characteristics and distinctive features and to the countless benefits they provide at an environmental, social and cultural level. In recent years the scientific community has realized that without specific intervention, this heritage is in danger of being lost due to several factors, from the abandonment of mountain areas by the population, to the increase in hydrogeological instability and the loss of technical knowledge specific to mountain areas. In order to halt this seemingly inexorable process, detrimental to society as a whole, it is fundamental to identify ideas and projects that are able to, on the one hand ensure the conservation of natural habitats and, on the other, the contribution of new scientific ideas and technology essential for the future of mountain areas and those who live there.
The Mountain University is therefore committed to:
The Unimont Logo distinguishes all educational and research initiatives, developed and/or approved by the Mountain University, which aim at a sustainable development and enhancement of mountain areas compatible with environmental, social and economic conservation.
The Mountain University collaborates with prestigious institutions and research centers involved in the analysis and development of mountain areas.
