SUNRAISE More Detail

The Arctic and high mountainous areas are jointly explored in the project due to many similar ecosystem vulnerabilities, e.g. related to permafrost and low biological production, and due to high role of indigenous communities in nature resource management and fast growing environmental footprint. The project would also focus on the drivers resulting into degradation of the land, water and other resources and their relation to ecosystem services in the high mountain areas such as eastern Himalayas. 
The action will mostly focus on bachelor’s and master’s levels, however, it will also address selected aspects of doctoral provision. The SUNRAISE e-learning system will be developed in order to enable sharing and dissemination of learning contents across the project network; series of webinars for master’s and PhD students will be piloted and arranged as regular events; MOOCs will be developed for each of the priority areas.
