Mountain Risks is a Marie Curie Research Training Network in the 6th Framework Program of the European Commission. Its focus is research and training in all aspects of mountains hazards and risks assessment and management. This European network intends to develop an advanced understanding of how mountain hydro-geomorphological processes behave and to apply this understanding to living with the hazards in the long-term.
The 4-year project started on January 1, 2007.
The Mountain Risk Project involves 14 partners institutes throughout Europe each hosting a Post-Doc (ER) and Ph.D (ESR) position. Most positions will be filled in 2007, 2008 and 2009. See the Jobs section for further details.
Mountain Risk is coordinated by the Department of Physical Geography and the Environment, University of Caen-Basse-Normandie, Caen, France and the CNRS.
