The Foundation’s main aim is to promote, develop and coordinate, principally at Courmayeur, research, studies, experiments and the organisation of meetings for further analysis and to publish factual knowledge concerning contemporary social issues of law and economics, with a particular focus on the international context.
The “Laurent Ferretti” Mountain Observatory was founded in 1994 as part of the Foundation itself with the following aims:
Starting in 2002 the Observatory Centre has carried out these projects with 5 different well-defined projects:
As the Mountain Observatory is based in Courmayeur it is perfectly placed to enjoy a privileged relationship with the Aosta Valley Region, whilst not ignoring the international aspect.
The Mountain Observatory is structured in a particularly flexible fashion, as defined by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, so that it can always be transformed to meet with the Foundation’s requirements. At the moment it has a President and two Vice Presidents.
