The 3rd LabEx ITEM International Winter School on 'Innovation and Mountain Territories' seeks to promote young researchers working on mountain territories. It is aimed at doctoral students, post-doctoral and junior researchers, and also at researchers in integration, or MA students planning on doing a PhD.
Participants 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.
This event will take place in the canton of Ticino in Switzerland, and is in cooperation with LabiSAlp (History of the Alps Study Centre) at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) and ISCAR.
