Mountain University research

Mountain University Research

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:

  • actively supporting research activities aimed at the conservation, enhancement and sustainable development of mountain areas;
  • strengthening multidisciplinary partnerships involved in the study and analysis of the characteristics of mountain areas;
  •  facilitating the consolidation and implementation of national and international research regarding the mountains;
  •  providing technological tools and expertise for the planning of development intervention;
  •  supporting the institutions responsible for governance in the experimentation and implementation stages of projects.
