The Alliance UNITA- Universitas Montium relies on the cooperation of six European universities, all romance language speaking, committed to foster the socio-economic development of their rural and cross border mountain areas. This project will focus on the aim for the Alliance to become a major player in the construction of the new European Research Area, by developing a common strategy for Research and Innovation. The project implements the first steps in order to develop a common research and innovation agenda around three core research topics that are Cultural heritage, Renewable energies and Circular economy. Further actions will also focus on brain circulation and attractiveness among the Alliance territories, sharing infrastructures, reinforcing the cooperation with non-academic actors (including citizens and civil society), knowledge transfer, and developing open science practices.
This project has received funding form the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101035810
