The European Geosciences Union (EGU) awards and medals programme recognises every year eminent scientists for their outstanding research contributions in the Earth, planetary and space sciences, and identifies the awardees as role models for the next generation of early career scientists to foster geosciences research.

GEO Mountains has launched a new small grants call for project proposals that explicitly explore mountain monitoring, data, and information.

From 19 to 21 March 2024, mountain experts, researchers, policy-makers, and stakeholders convened in Cordoba, Spain, for a Scientific Conference, organised in the framework of the EU-funded MOVING project MOVING project (MOuntain Valorisation through INterconnectedness and Green Growth).

The MRI Governing Body has been quite active in recent months, from receiving awards and research grants to publishing new mountain-related research. These achievements reinforce their commitment to supporting and advocating for mountain issues through rigorous research efforts.

Volume 21, Issue 3 of the Journal of Mountain Science includes a diverse array of articles, each offering unique insights into mountainous landscapes.

The issue is available online and open access.

Spanning from October 2023 to August 2024, the EU-funded MOVING (MOuntain Valorisation through INterconnectedness and Green Growth) project embarks on a journey to explore the diverse challenges and opportunities within Europe’s mountain regions through its podcast series “Conversations on Sustainable Mountains”. Based on MOVING’s research results, this series offers a unique window into ways to innovate mountain territories, making them more resilient to climate change and other threats.
