Strategic research agenda: Mountains for Europe’s Future



Mountains for Europe's Future cover


During 2015 and 2016, a strategic research agenda for Europe’s mountains was developed by a multi-national interdisciplinary team (including Martin Price), coordinated by the Swiss-Austrian Alliance.  The process involved a series of workshops and online discussions, and resulted in the strategic research agenda, Mountains for Europe’s Future, edited by Martin Price.  This was launched in April 2016 at an event at Scotland House in Brussels.  It outlines why mountains are important at the European scale, provides recommendations for activities on mountain topics within Horizon 2020, and presents six sets of proposals for interdisciplinary research on mountains to be included in future Horizon 2020 calls.
