The Lusophony Mountain Research Network will promote information flow among researchers and research institutions and work to create more and better opportunities for research partnerships, projects, grants, education, etc. 

As part of a broader mountain network (the MRI supported networks) LuMont will be directly connected to the entire mountain community, which allows for endless possibilities for cooperation in science, education and development, as well as for active participation in the definition of research and political agendas in mountain socio-ecological systems.
