A one-week training course will be organised in the framework of the H2020 EU-funded project Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza, 18-22 November 2019, to address the importance of social innovation in less favoured rural areas.
Social innovation has been heralded as a vital part of the European recovery project since the economic crisis in 2008. It is of particular importance to rural areas, especially more disadvantaged rural areas, where multiple problems of depopulation, environmental quality decline, and low levels of economic activity have been recurrent. With the trend of rapid urbanisation, the remoter rural areas will continue to be adversely affected.
The deadline to submit your abstract for the International Mountain Conference 2019 is fast approaching! All abstracts must be received by 14 February 2019.
The International Mountain Conference 2019 (IMC 2019) will take place 8-12 September 2019 at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Building upon the legacy of the Perth mountain conference series, IMC 2019 aims to encourage in-depth, cross-disciplinary exchange and collaboration, and will provide an excellent opportunity for experts from different disciplines to come together and discuss mountains, their responses to climate and other changes, and their resilience as social-ecological systems.
The MRI is looking forward to number of contributions to IMC 2019 from the MRI community of researchers, and we would like to take this opportunity to encourage more mountain researchers to participate.
