The project LabEx ITEM, Innovation and Mountain Territories aims at developing research on mountain territories, with an interdisciplinary approach and in response to contemporary societal issues of these territories. It particularly questions transition and adaptation processes, the forms and perspectives of evolution in a context of global change.
In April 2018, the LabEx ITEM will organise its 3 rd International Winter School in the canton of Ticino (Switzerland) in cooperation with LabiSAlp (History of the Alps Study Centre) of the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI). This meeting seeks to promote young researchers working on mountain territories in an international convivial ambiance. It offers the opportunity to develop training in research, make own ongoing or planned works known, exchange them with a comparative perspective and facilitate the cooperation within international research projects. The Winter School will be organised in the form of presentations, alternating with working groups, lectures and a field trip.
This edition is addressed to young researchers: doctoral students, post-doctoral and junior researchers, but also researchers in integration, or MA students planning on doing a PhD.
To that end, ISCAR (International Scientific Committee on Research in the Alps) endorses this action.
Communicators will present their projects or findings on mountain territories, from all geographic areas. The topic is deliberately broad: it will deal with contemporary dynamics, from the perspective of humanities and social sciences, or with an interdisciplinary approach (environmental science, health science, etc.). The selection criteria will relate to the innovative character, the quality and the relevance to societal challenges.
