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.

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).

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.

Researchers and young scientists interested in contributing to the Carpathian region are invited to join the Science for the Carpathians network. An open call is now active, and interested individuals are encouraged to participate in the survey by 1 February 2024, available here.

Mountain Invasion Research Network (MIREN) is pleased to announce the launch of their latest initiative—the MIREN rock face survey, a global exploration into the impact of rock climbing on cliff vegetation. Distinct from traditional monitoring efforts on mountain roads and trails, this survey aims to unveil the unique linear disturbance caused by rock climbing routes.

On 11 January 2024, over 50 high-level European experts on mountains convened in Brussels, Belgium, to discuss the future of mountain regions and enabling post-2027 EU policies for these regions. The discussion was part of the European Foresight Workshop for resilient mountain areas, organised by the EU-funded MOVING project (MOuntain Valorisation through INterconnectedness and Green Growth).
