Project description

Research for rural and mountain areas

UNITA Universitas Montium is an alliance of six universities from five countries – all Romance language speaking (French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish). It envisages promoting the socio economic development of their rural and cross-border mountain areas. The EU-funded Re-UNITA project will focus on the aim of the alliance, so it becomes a major player in the creation of the new European Research Area. The project will implement the first steps to develop a common strategy for research and innovation around the core research subjects of Cultural heritage, Renewable energies, and Circular economy.

Objective

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.
