Presentation of the 2nd phase Conéctate A+

Conéctate A+ is a network of researchers and institutions, founded by Swissuniversities and led by the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), the University of Zurich, and CONDESAN, interested in deepening the interdisciplinary analysis of key interactions between mountain ecosystems, climate change, human health, and sustainable development in the Tropical Andes and Central America region. The second phase of Connect A+ has been launched with new funding calls, a series of webinars and more to foster collaboration between researchers.

We warmly invite you to join the first webinar of the new series taking place on 8 June from 9:00 to 10:00 Lima-Bogotá / 16:00 to 17:00 CEST (English and Spanish, simultaneous translation). The Conéctate A+ leadership and coordination team will provide an overview of upcoming activities, highlighting opportunities for participation, engagement, and collaboration.
