Network for European Mountain Research (NEMOR)

NEMOR is a network of researchers who want to promote research in, and for the sustainable development of, mountain areas.  This aligns very closely with the interests of Euromontana, whose members include many research organisations. Similarly, Euromontana has been, and is, involved in many research projects; continuing such involvement is central for the future of Euromontana and to achieve its vision.

Context

The Network for European Mountain Research (NEMOR) was established in 2017. It builds on concerted collaboration between researchers across different disciplines and European countries, particularly through initiatives led by the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), and especially in the framework of the former Swiss-Austrian Alliance for Mountain Research (CH-AT).

A key outcome of this collaboration is the Strategic Research Agenda ‘Mountains for Europe’s Future’, which was launched in Brussels on 26 April 2016.  This position statement advocates the need to continue and promote mountain research in Europe.  To do this, the scientists involved in this initiative, together with many more from across Europe, recognised the need for a platform that supports networking initiatives, providing scientists undertaking mountain research across Europe – or who are interested in doing so – with a common point of reference.

Key objectives

  • Advocate for European mountain research, covering the spectrum from basic to transdisciplinary research;
  • Enable discussion of research priorities addressing mountain regions, particularly in relation to the vision of Euromontana;
  • Foster and connect mountain networks and inter/transboundary partnerships;
  • Initiate, coordinate and enhance activities with reference to the priority topics of the “Mountains for Europe’s Future” with a view toward the European Commission’s new research programme (FP9) and other funding instruments;
  • Recognize the functions of mountains for Europe as a whole and enable connections to relevant organizations and institutions;
  • Serve as the interlinkage from European to global mountain topics in support of MRI’s vision.

Meetings

The first face-to-face meeting of NEMOR will be at the Forum Alpinum on 4-6 June 2018 in Austria.
