The event

AMALPI WEEK 2021 is a free training course where the objective is to carry out local observations, surveys and monitoring in the area covered by the AMALPI 18 project. Participants will acquire the knowledge and practical skills necessary to gather and elaborate data that will be used to analyse and interpret models to study and solve geological and technical problems, especially those linked to mountain slope stability and rock falls.

The course is organised into theoretical lessons, seminars and field surveys and is designed for students taking Master’s or PhD degrees and freelance professionals. It is run in collaboration with the Geological Society of Lombardy and is accredited for CPD (Continuing Professional Development).

AMALPI 18 is designed to increase the tourist offer in the region between Bregaglia, Val Chiavenna, Moesa and the Ticino River. This initiative is behind a cross-border geo-cultural route for the scientific community and the general public. AMALPI is part of the Interreg V-A Italy-Switzerland 2014-2020 Co-operation Programme, Priority 2 “Promotion of the natural and cultural heritage”.
