The Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) invites the submission of pre-proposals for Synthesis Workshops. The 4-6 selected workshops will be implemented in MRI’s next grant period from October 2016 to September 2019.
A Synthesis Workshop typically results in at a minimum the publication of a synthesis paper for a specific topic. The workshop itself consists of one multi-day meeting of a group of leading experts in a specific field. MRI can contribute up to 15’000 CHF as seed money toward the cost of the facility rental, experts’ travel expenses, food and accommodation. The proponents are expected to find additional funding as needed to cover the full budget of the Workshop.
