International Mountain Conference
After the three global mountain research conferences carried out by the Centre for Mountain Studies at Perth, Scotland (2005, 2010 and 2015) the University of Innsbruck, Austria is organizing the next International Mountain Conference, 8-12 September 2019, in Innsbruck. The conference intends to stimulate intense cross-disciplinary exchange, create and foster collaborations, enhance common papers and give birth to a living document on the current state of mountain research.
The Federal Institute for Less-Favoured and Mountainous Areas is contributing to this event through its expertise and will moderate three scientific sessions. Topics focus on
- The challenges and potentials of demographic change
- The need to strengthen transformation strategies for mountain regions, and
- The discussion of social inclusive development, by highlighting gender, generation and diversity as drivers for change.
