Meeting over the University of the Mountains in Crete, Greece, at the LEAD Programme
On November 18, 2014, Prof.Dr. I Pallikaris, Prof.Dr. C. Lionis and Prof.Dr. A. Philalithis undertook a visit to the LEAD Programme in order to attend a meeting during which the objective to join the International Consortium on Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Development of Mountain Communities (IKS&DMC) and the corresponding aim to establish a University of the Mountains in Crete, Greece, were discussed.
The results of the meeting added up to an agreement by which LEAD would undertake further efforts to assess the possibilities of application for funding at the European Union. In addition, the meeting envisaged the preparation of a draft proposal, which would be discussed during a Worskhop organised in Crete in June 2015 and which would be submitted in its final version before September 2015.
