Mountain Research Initiative launches new Newsletter

Sep 25, 2008 / alpMedia
The first issue of MRI NEWS has just been published. The Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) newsletter will be sent out by e-mail in English twice a year and is entirely given over to research on Global Change in mountain areas.
MRI NEWS also provides information from regional networks, but unlike the already well established two-monthly regional Newsflash, NEWS takes a more in-depth look at various topics, with features covering 30 to 40 pages. For instance MRI's activities as initiator and sponsor of inter- and transdisciplinary research is to be showcased. The Science Peaks item features research work from different fields, in a compact and easily understandable format. A summary of relevant publications is also provided, along with news of forthcoming events.
MRI is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). It is hosted at the Institute of Geography of the University of Bern/CH.
