UCD Mountain Research is a Strategic Priority of the UCD Earth Institute for 2021-2023. Put simply, the aims of MRG are to promote interdisciplinary work on mountain landscapes within and beyond UCD.

More specifically, we will

  • raise broader awareness within and beyond UCD of dynamism of mountains and their role in Sustainable Development Goals
  • promote research on mountain landscapes within UCD and provide platform for expansion
  • establish networks of researchers and relevant agencies within and outside of UCD
  • support the development of grant applications and capacity building within UCD
