Science Leadership Council

Science Leadership Council

The Science Leadership Council (SLC) provides advice and impetus for the MRI's scientific activities. SLC members are observers of the strategic environment. They are also key contributors to research on mountain regions, and through their own activities carry forward the MRI's scientific agenda.

The Science Leadership Council meets regularly to discuss the MRI's strategic and operational issues, as part of their engagement within the MRI Governing Body.

Below is a list of current SLC members as well as those whose terms conclude in 2024.
