The Italian Mountain Lab project, set up by the Mountain University in collaboration with the University of Eastern Piedmont and the University of Tuscia, aims to promote a training and research laboratory regarding the Italian mountains, which also involves the awareness of Italian high schools, through the establishment of a technological and digital platform able to build on common competences and experiences present in Italy, overcoming physical distances.

For the whole school community and citizens in general, it was a unique opportunity to explore, deepen and live the themes of the National Plan for the Digital School #PNSD in Italy.
