The Mountain Research Centre follows an interdisciplinary approach based on an applied research strategy covering issues and expertise that goes from Nature (raw materials, natural resources, biodiversity, agriculture and forest management) to Products (Food or Bio-based materials).CIMO aims to

promote research in mediterranean mountain areas according to the best international practices, promoting scientific observation and experimental development for the conservation, exploitation and scientific valorisation of biodiversity, natural resources, farming and forest systems, and mountain products; to develop sustainable land use systems, improving endogenous research competencies; and linking research and stakeholders promoting sustainable development in mountain areas. CIMO is socially committed at enhancing opportunities and income for and in mountain areas.The Centre has currently 77 PhD integrated members specialists in a wide range of fields in natural, social and engineering sciences that focus its research on sustainable development promotion through the use of endogenous resources and creation of value chains.
