Supporting policy design that enhances the resilience of mountain regions through new or upgraded value chains

Setting up a European community of stakeholders to foster the exchange of knowledge and experiences


MOVING (MOuntain Valorisation through INterconnectedness and Green growth) is a Horizon 2020 project (2020-2024) coordinated by the University of Córdoba, gathering 23 partner organisations. The project will build capacities and co-develop policy frameworks across Europe. It will establish new or upscaled value chains to contribute to the resilience and sustainability of mountain areas to climate change.
