Background

The HUC Academy is the consortium’s flagship annual intensive programme, and provides opportunities for young researchers to engage in cross-disciplinary scholarship. It aims to foster a new generation of transformational leaders committed to mountain research, capable of producing consequential knowledge, innovate policies, and environmentally responsible business practices to address HKH mountain challenges from transboundary perspectives. The four signature features of the HUC Academy are mountain focus, interdisciplinarity, field research, and leadership.
