Conference: ForumAlpinum 2014 Alpine resources - Use, valorisation and management from local to macro-regional scale

September 17-20, 2014, in Darfo Boario Terme, Val Camonica, Italy

The eleventh edition of the ForumAlpinum will focus on the valorisation, use and management of Alpine resources from local to macro-regional scale. The ongoing elaboration of a macro-regional strategy for the Alpine region will be a backbone for discussing Alpine resource issues, as well as future orientations in research and macro-regional cooperation e.g. within the Alpine Space Programme 2014 – 2020.

Plenary sessions and thematic workshops will focus on questions as: How can Alpine regions better valorise their resources? What should we learn from past resource use? What are the main challenges of resource management in the future? What are best models of governance regarding sustainable use of Alpine resources?

A poster session will be dedicated to young scientists active in the field of Alpine Research on September 17th 2014. The first 4 posters will receive a prize of € 1,000 each, offered by the Presidency of the Council of Ministry - Department of Regional Affairs, Sports and Autonomy. Further 6 posters will receive a prize of € 500 each. Please see the call for abstracts on the webpage for more information.
