Global Change and Mountain Regions: the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) Coordination Office is a scientific infrastructure project that promotes and coordinates research on global change in mountain regions (Becker and Bugmann 2001). MRI organizes its work around four "I's" : initiation, implementation, integration, and information. Initiation focuses on the formation of networks of researchers so that they can better develop interdisciplinary research activities and proposals. Implementation involves both support to these networks and maintenance of the profile of global change in mountain regions as a key topic. Integration focuses on the synthesis of research results and leads to the publication of new knowledge. Information means the translation of research results into guidance useful for policy makers and practitioners. MRI will expand these successful activities during the 2010-2013 period.•MRI will increase from three to five the number of Synthesis Workshops to integrate research results .•As part of Mountain.TRIP (an FP7 funded Support Action), MRI will integrate research results and generate information products useful to practitioners working on sustainable development in mountain regions in Europe.•MRI will implement 13 Key Contacts workshops to initiate and to guide implementation of interdisciplinary research. •MRI will promote and guide implementation through the Earth System Science Partnership and international organizations.MRI will launch these new initiatives and profound revisions of existing efforts in the 2010-2013 period.•MRI will establish a Global Commission by combining its existing Science Advisory Board with a group of active and senior researchers from all mountain regions of the world to provide strategic oversight and advance implementation of the global change research agenda for mountains.•MRI and its Global Commission will initiate a campaign to shape scientific contributions to the United Nation's Commission on Sustainable Development in 2012 on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Agenda 21, of which Chapter 13 on mountains has been historically a focus of Swiss scientific and policy attention.•MRI will partner with the Mountain Invasives Research Network to integrate research results and to create information for stakeholders world-wide on invasive species, an increasingly important global change driver in mountain regions. •If funded by the EU, MRI will launch a major integration and information project (FINESSE) in Africa, and another research integration project (CC.AWARE) in Europe.•MRI will engage regional research coordinators for initiation and implementation in Latin America, Africa and Central Asia using Swiss Development and Cooperation Agency funds, while continuing to using Austrian Academy of Science and SNF funding for support of the coordinator of MRI Europe. •MRI will profoundly enhance its communication channels and products to promote initiation, describe implementation, integrate results and distribute information, by initiating a true on-line social network of global change researchers in mountain regions. The total budget of MRI for all activities, including FINESSE, CC.AWARE and the SDC-funded regional networks is 2'218'710 chf. Given external funding of 1'121'104 chf, the request of MRI to SNF is for 1'097'607 chf. During this 2007-2010 grant period, MRI received a total of 906'798.52 chf from SNF.
