Associated researchers 2012/2013
From time to time
the Institute of History of the Alps LabiSAlp grants a limited number of historians
the status of Associated Researchers for a period of two years. The status
enables them to refer to certain services offered by LabiSAlp.
The aim is to enable a group of researchers who work within the
ambit of History of the Alps to present and discuss their own research within the framework of four
seminars which take place at the seat of the Institute of History of the Alps in Mendrisio. Invited
Professors will take part in the seminars; they will lead the discussions and make comments on the reports
At the end of the two-year cycle the Associated
Researchers LabiSAlp are required to deliver a scientific article on their own project. The article
will be published online in the collection of working papers “Percorsi di ricerca”.

cover research expenses up to an annual amount fixed at the beginning of the two-year cycle (active

that should be stimulating and interactive.
